Three graduate sculptors of Kunstakademie Düsseldorf come together with Tony Cragg to bring us their latest work.
Coming up at Blain Southern London this month is a sculpture exhibition by Mathias Lanfer, Gereon Lepper and Andreas Schmitten, all alumni of the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. The exhibition is curated by prestigious sculptor Tony Cragg, who is also a professor at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf.
Cragg is an English sculptor who moved to Germany in the 70s, he has exhibited in countless galleries and won many important awards such as the Turner Prize. His work is particularly concerned with material. His earlier work is specifically interested in making use of found and discarded objects and materials. For him material determines form.
Using sculpture, Lanfer’s work looks at form finding as well as public space, Lepper’s work investigates nature’s response to technical intervention and the ongoing transformation of energy, with the addition of Schmitten’s clean sculptures influenced by his interest in film and animation it is exciting to see how the work of these esteemed artists will come together under the curation of Tony Cragg.
The exhibition will run 10 July - 29 August 2015 at Blain Southern, London.
