Jörg Plickat, Corten Steel, 2017
The German sculptor Jörg Plickat creates a formal language in stainless steel and Corten steel. His forms are abstract and geometric, they seek a balance between monumentalism and fragility. The artist investigates the relationship between volume and material. His powerful shapes can be found worldwide in museum parks and spacious private gardens. They are monumental constructions in cohesion with the surrounding nature and/or the architectural context of the whole.
‘Helping hands’ symbolizes the cooperation between people and cultures. The imposing shape stands for mass, movement and its existence. The artwork subtly confirms the harmony that the art carries within itself. The rusty surface of its Corten steel casing creates a coherent whole with the raw concrete facade construction of the adjacent Art Foundation.
