THOMAS KIESEWETTER
NEUE SKULPTUREN
26 April - 01 June 2013

We are pleased to present the third solo exhibition with Thomas Kiesewetter at Contemporary Fine Arts. The new show introduces three new bodies of work by the artist.

The series of the freestanding sculptures continues Kiesewetter’s pictorial language and the formal repertoire of his prior works. While his previous detached sculptures with their interplay between inside and outside, open and closed were received as constructivist cubistic, the artist now quasi organically combines more closed and “monolithic” forms with each other. A change has also occurred in the use of colour: whereas the monochrome paint has been previously used to cover the individual parts of the sculpture like a joining overcoat, the artist this time subjects the works to a gestural style of painting. Simultaneously, the only seemingly incidental colouring serves to emphasise several forms as well as to undermine others underlining the physique of the sculpture as a whole.

Since last year, Thomas Kiesewetter has also been producing wall sculptures. In contrast to the impact and physicalness of the freestanding sculptures, they offer a kind of sculptural “snap-shot” which is extensively dedicating itself to the aspects of inside and outside, surface and form. Kiesewetter doesn’t see these works as reliefs. They thus don’t describe an interstation on the way from image to sculpture, but offer the viewer a defined focus.

Small, detailed sculptures build a third body of work in the exhibition. Their materiality allows and depends on a playful and more open approach which provides the sculptures with a charming “chamber play”-like lightness. The rivets, junctions and screwed joints- the traces of the manual handling of the metal however are kept continually visible in these sculptural formations.
