Valerie Krause (b. 1976, Germany) work emphasises volumes and the hidden dynamism that solid bodies can hold. Her sculptures adopt elementary forms: they are not strictly geometrical constructs, but shapes that seem to assume movement in space, accompanied by a gentle minimisation of the forms. The relation between objects and the surrounding space is a central theme in Krause's artistic research. Walking through her sculptures we perceive space, as a place that express changing. The interchange of materials such as plaster, steel and wood is accompanied by changes in the forms, some of them rigid, static, others more dynamic. Through layers, twisting and emphasised diagonals, she underlines the intrinsic dynamism of the material, denoting an impression of instability that interferes with the spectator's perception of the space.Read More
