21st January until 5th March 2017
Working and processing materials is frequently set with imponderables which may sometimes lead to some unpredictable results. This more often than not undesirable state of affairs is for the artist Mathias Lanfer a welcome opportunity for improvisation. Despite the fact that the production of his sculptures is meticulously prepared with the aid of sketches, models and structural designs, he is quite willing to allow accidental influences, which are inevitable during the working process, to play their part. "Logic is also a form of play in all of this and surprises even arise where one would expect them.", he points out.
