Sculptures from the Wemhöner Collection (English)

The third volume on the Wemhöner Collection again confirms the unpredictability of Heiner Wemhöner’s view of art. In his everyday life, he is surrounded by sculptures by Stephan Balkenhol and the Italian avant-garde. The abstract stoneware by Ulrich Rückriem mirrors the controlled contoured bronzes of Tony Cragg. And while Ernesto Neto secured his way into the collection with oversized childhood memories, a ‘steel line’ by Bernar Venet is still waiting for the right spot. But what does Asta Gröting’s cast of an acre of land and the precariously buckled street posts by Bettina Pousttchi have to do with each other? The works are annotated by the art historian Ulrike Münter and chronicled in an interview with Heiner Wemhöner. The Berlin photographer Andrea Stappert portrays the sculptures at the spot where they found their place in Heiner Wemhöner’s life.
