Franz Erhard Walther at Peter Freeman, New York
October 31 – December 20, 2013
Since the 1960s, he has conceived of his canvas sculptures as “instruments,” and has placed the viewer in a critical role: only when the objects are used, in ways appointed by the artist, are they completed. Unlike many other artists following his lead in creating sculptures for the viewer to handle and animate, Walther is not motivated by spectacle, humor, or the nature of performance, but rather the meditative and contemplative possibilities of the experience.
Surely amazing. So sad to miss this.
Please enjoy the time and space.
