Axel Grünewald looks at the edges of the present. For more than five years, he has repeatedly traveled through the coastal regions of Morocco and southern Spain, to the continental border between Europe and Africa.

Incisions in spaces

Sculptural collages
How can the concept of the collage become three-dimensional? The eight artists presented here use found objects or pre-fabricated fragments for their sculptures and installations, merging these materials together. They develop methods of superimposition and combination, of confrontation and transformation, of montage and assemblage; here the heterogeneous – a semantic or stylistic brokenness – is an aesthetic parameter. The collage – as a fundamental design principle and a method of scepticism and analysis of the traditional concept of the image – enables many ways of bringing objects into surprising dialogue with each other and with the surrounding space.
