„Skulptur 23“ is based on Hans Richter‘s work „Rhythmus 23“ from 1923, one of a series of drawings on long paper rolls. Richter used it as a study for his abstract short films, with which he explored a temporal structure in painting. For the work „Skulptur 23“, Richter‘s figures have been transformed into three-dimensional reality, then tightly fitted into one another and condensed into a multi-layered structure. A shadow projection produces both an extension and compression, the complexity of which is influenced by the number and position of light sources used. The result is a sculpture that can no longer be spatially or temporally defined.
