Johannes Wald (b. 1980, Germany) work examines sculpture, deconstructing its general parameters and the necessary tenets of its existence. His works embody Wald’s musings about his self image as an artist, 'a conceptual artist, dreaming of becoming a real sculptor'. His production reflects on the materialization of immaterial concepts and develops leaving the works in an intermediate phase: hollows, omissions and shortcomings compose its delicate poetic language, letting the material radiate a sense of instability. Connecting with the frailest and doubtful part of human being, Johannes Wald take issue not only with the classical sculptural techniques but also with the identity of the artist and his ability to express feelings and emotions in terms of material shapes, subjected to the eternal becoming and the constant change of state.Read More
