“not constructing … but then what? dropping, hanging, leaning – in short: doing.”
(robert morris, 1970)
the exhibition brings together sculptures and installations by contemporary artists who take a process-oriented approach to their work and seek form by means of action and analysis and making use of all kinds of materials. the works displayed have one thing in common, namely an artistic process that comes alive with the material, as well as silence, humorous eccentricity, all the way to complete openness to experimentation. the actions that result in the creation of the work imbue the works even after it is complete – like the enmeshing, tearing, folding, bending and crushing of the material.
