In her work, the Hamburg-based sculptor Annette Meincke-Nagy (* 1965) focuses on people and being a human being. Her plastic inventions pay homage to the beauty and dignity of human physiognomy. Inspired by Renaissance portraits, Meincke-Nagy makes her sculptures out of a mixture of paper, sand, and glue. It is a time-consuming process, in which each sculpture is constructed layer by layer. With the programmatic title of her catalogue, Touchable, she refers to the visible as well as the physical presence of her figures, which have a dreamy, introverted effect, but seem all the more present because of it. They appear to be physically absorbed in themselves, in a universal, timeless, human state of being.
