Skulptur und Natur

Schlossgut Schwante

At Schlossgut Schwante near Berlin, a sculpture exhibition is on view in the Schlosspark until October 30th, 2020. Among the exhibits are two loans from Galerie Thomas by the two artists George Rickey and Ulrich Rückriem.

Rickey, who is considered one of the main representatives of kinetic art, gives his sculptures a lightness that incorporates the interplay of light and shadow as well as the natural environment. This is also shown in the work 'Three Squares Vertical Diagonal II', which was exhibited in the American artist's outdoor studio in East Chatham, New York.

Ulrich Rückriem's work deals with the relationship of the sculpture to its location and the viewer. The German sculptor developed his own working technique, which deals with the work material and the working process by doubling, dividing and reducing the material. He often cuts blocks of stone into individual pieces, which he then reassembles into a new form, as in 'Untitled', which can be seen in the exhibition 'Sculpture and Nature' in Schwante, alongside other works by artists such as Hans Arp, Hicham Berrada, Tony Cragg, Martin Creed, Björn Dahlem, Jay Gard, Dan Graham, Gregor Hildebrandt, Alexandra Hopf, Jeewi Lee, Maria Loboda, Toshihiko Mitsuya, Carsten Nicolai, David Renggli, Yehudit Sasportas, Willem Jan Smit, Monika Sosnowska, Katja Strunz, Lee Ufan, Ai Weiwei.
