Sculptural Sphere

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.

With Martin Boyce, Thomas Demand, Mark Manders, Manfred Pernice and Liisa Roberts.

"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.

Felix Gonzalez-Torres, "Untitled", 1992

An exhibition project by the Sammlung Goetz in public space

The black-and-white photograph "Untitled" (1992) by Felix Gonzalez-Torres, in which a figure’s ghostly shadow is captured on a billowing curtain, is part of the artist’s billboard series. The concept behind the work is that the owner produces the image as a public poster. Regardless of how often it is printed, it is always unique. In the context of Munich’s Various Others project, the Sammlung Goetz is presenting "Untitled" (1992) on five billboards in around the city and in front of its own exhibition building in Munich.
