Martin Schwenk at Universitätsgalerie Oktogon
Curated by Roman Zheleznyak
Universitätsgalerie Oktogon, Wuppertal
June 23 – July 29, 2018
Soberly titled exhibition Baum 7 is moving the key work into the spotlight. The vertically ordered sculpture occupy practically the entire space and the central position allows the viewer an all-round visibility. The clinical green object sets itself apart from the currently natural green park environment. Partly shaped PU foam forms and acrylic transparent tubes underlines the alienated appearance in the classicistic pavilion surrounding.
Schwenk is mainly interested in growth through the material expansion. His post-nature sculptures are the result of accurate observation and continuous experimentations.
