Sculptural Sphere
March 6 – September 12, 2004 | Goetz Collection

The works in the exhibition Sculptural Sphere go far beyond the framework of the traditional concept of sculpture. Due to the diverse media used for them, they reference socio-political reality that goes far beyond questions inherent to art.

"Sculptures fascinate me," says Ingvild Goetz. "Some artists – like Donald Judd – work exclusively in a formal context. In this case I am interested in the aesthetics and the formal or logical rigor. Other artists, in contrast, link formal aspects to content-based connotations and narrative contexts expressed by the object. The viewer may notice these at the outset or due to associations – or completely subjectively, free of any information that the artist may provide." This second group contains works by Martin Boyce, Thomas Demand, Mark Manders, Manfred Pernice, Liisa Roberts and Tom Sachs, who are all included in the exhibition Sculptural Sphere. Significantly, not all of these are sculptors, but also artists who integrate sculptural questions with other media. With over 60 artworks, the exhibition conveys Ingvild Goetz's view of current tendencies in modern sculpture.
