A solo-exhibition of hand carved marble sculptures by the Munich-based artists Venske & Spänle. Since 1997, the artists have collaborated to sketch and cut their curious, biomorphic forms from stone, meticulously trimming and polishing each into its final state.
Taking visual and conceptual inspiration from the realms of sci-fi, cartoon animation and an innate sense of playful humor, Venske & Spänle are deeply interested in the interaction between sculpture, space and viewer.
The fleshy folds and gestures the artists are able to pull from stone have the ability to fascinate and confound. Many reach into a classic visual vocabulary, displaying mannerist expressions of pull and tension.
