GÜNTER HAESE // Neue Skulpturen // March 29, 2010 until May 8, 2010
Günter Haese has been making mobile sculptures since the late 1950s. In 1964, he became the first German artist after the second world war to have a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. He participated in Documenta in Kassel in 1964 and went on to represent Germany at the Venice Biennale in 1966. His fragile, delicate sculptures are in many important collections include the MoMA and the Guggenheim in New York and a number of German museum collections.
His sculptures are small in size and made of phosphor bronze wires in metallic and black colors. Every movement in the air or vibration in a room brings them to movement. These tenuous wire compositions become light, poetic constellations. They are precious indeed, with Haese's small oeuvre consisting in just around 400 sculptures over his decades-long career.
