GUNTHER UECKER, Dreieck, 1989

In the sixties, Uecker was a member of the “Zero” group, which was founded in Düsseldorf. In a Zen-Buddhist meditative state, he hits nails making sure the wood is only slightly penetrated. As if each of his preselected forms would have sprouted nail spirals organically, the artist proves how light and shadows perform a mutual rhythmic dance.
