Bent, forged, cut, soldered, polished to a mirror finish or engraved, metal stirs the imagination of the five sculptors presented in the new exhibition at Museum Biedermann and is key to their creative practice. The sculptor Gert Riel, who will be celebrating his 70th birthday in January 2011, was head of the metal workshop in the sculpture department of the Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design from 1974 to 2005. There he met the four other artists of the exhibition whose works are now part of the Biedermann collection.
Metal as a medium of artistic expression, Gert Riel's workshop encounters with artists of different generations and their reunion in the Biedermann collection are at the heart of the third exhibition at Museum Biedermann. The exhibition presents sculptures and wall-based works and offers intriguing insights into the way different artists investigate the near-infinite expressive potential of the weighty yet hugely ductile and responsive material.
