REFLECTIONS ON SPACE GARDEN, 10.18
German sculptor Katja Strunz has written some personal reflections on Markus Schaller’s new body of work, Space Garden. Strunz comments intuitively on the role of sculpture in the digital age, where the body and objects often “disappear.”
“In his essay Gegenkörper (counter body) philosopher Bjung Chul Han (Professor at the University of Arts (UdK) in Berlin) reflects on a poem by the austrian novelist Peter Handtke: the slight pressure you need to open an old iron door makes you happy. You need to lean against an old door to open it. The electric door however does not make a stand against the human body. And within digital structures, resistance, the resistance of an object, even more the object itself, gets lost…”
