PAPER. BETON. SOUND.

25. November 2023 – 21. January 2024 | 14:00 bis 17:30 Uhr

PAPER. BETON. SOUND.

Susanne Piotter designs sculptural objects made of cast concrete that create an astonishing sculptural effect. Strictly geometrically reduced, they are reminiscent of fragments of architecture, refer to urban structures and at the same time appear as independent creations of form. In it, Piotter explores the possibilities and limits of concrete as a material. Both massive and archaic as well as miniature and fragile, partly in gray, partly accentuated in strong colors, the works captivate with their autonomous expressiveness. As wall reliefs or plinth sculptures, the works unfold their equally raw and sensual, constructive and expressive appeal in the field of tension between surfaces, volume and space. The sculptures also subtly and ironically question our use of concrete as a building material and its significance and aesthetics for buildings, the environment and society. Born in Düsseldorf in 1969, the artist lives and works in Berlin.

Clemens Schneider uses handmade paper to create impressive installations that allow us to experience space in a new way through the interplay of material and sound. His large-format sheets of paper are made from recycled old textiles in an elaborate process using equipment he built himself. Tones and sounds are created by electronic piezo crystals in the colored paper structures and provide an art experience that appeals to all the senses. These “Talking Papers” produce peculiar, meditative sounds. At the same time, the fragile material gains its own space-creating power and its transparency allows the light to resonate as an important expressive factor. Schneider’s approach, which is as sustainable as it is creative and subversive, sees itself as a critique of environmental destruction and the waste of resources. For the Villa Bosch, he designed a work specially tailored to the rooms. Born in Stuttgart in 1974, the artist lives and works in the state capital.
