I received a scholarship! The Ministerium für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kunst Baden-Württemberg hat mir zur Förderung meines künstlerischen Vorhabens ein Stipendium bewilligt. Was für eine schöne Bestätigung meiner Arbeit. Ich habe mich riesig gefreut.
What does art have to do with research? The Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts puts it in a nutshell on its website: Kreativität ist die wichtigste Ressource des Hochtechnologielandes Baden-Württemberg.
What is my project?
Based on the existing model of the sculpture Life I would like to develop a series of sculptures that build up on one another. All sculptures will be about one meter high and will have a similar direction of movement.
With each new development step, the slender loops of the sculpture Life become fuller and eventually merge into a monolithic block. Each of the sculptures is clearly based on its predecessor, but has its very own charisma that can be associated with different phases of life:
The play of children, the swing of youth, the abundance of young adult life, the responsibility in mid-life, the calm of old age.
The grant from the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts Baden-Württemberg enables me to concentrate on this series of sculptures over the next few months. I see that as a great gift and it makes me very happy.
