The group show 'pər-ˈsō-nae' will reflect on the aspects and perspectives of figurative contemporary sculpture. We live in ambivalent times in regard to the 'bodily' – on the one hand, we are experiencing a constant drift into the digital/virtual that encompasses all areas of life; on the other hand there is at once an increase in this longing for 'real-ness', tangibility and sensation that almost takes a manic streak. Sculpture responds to our desire for the physical as it gives a form to reality and negotiates concrete topics by means of their literal corporeality. It raises questions of identity, relationship structure, the perception of experience and space. Hyper-reality and the delimitation of the body can be as well in focus as biopolitics, consumption, pop culture, digitalism and the personal localization within these structures. The artists invited elaborate in their artistic practice in a particular and complex manner with aspects of the figurative and have developed an authentic and distinct artistic language of expression.
