The exhibition at Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl features around 20 kinetic artworks by the artist, who died in 2016. By shaping and soldering wires and small parts made of brass and phospor bronze, unique art objects are created that can be set in motion by light drafts of air.
The objects exude a poetry and purposelessness that lend them an enigmatic quality that elevates them far beyond the temporally bound nature of the referenced ideas. This is a nice addition to the term “spatial graphics,” which Haese himself coined. Moreover, the poetic element in his objects could perhaps make them a kind of “dream machines.”
