Gil Shachar’s large whale will be ‘stranding’ in Berlin. In 2018 Shachar and his local team were able to take a mould of a Humpback Whale in South Africa. The life-size sculpture (14 m length) was cast and assembled in Cape Town, before being shipped to Germany for it’s first appearance at Kunstmuseum Bochum in 2020. As a space St. Elisbeth church is of considerable historical significance, bearing memory of traumatic but also hopeful occurrences, and seems to be the perfect venue.
This exhibition informs with work examples about the more than 70 years of artistic works by Ursula Sax (born 1936). The important German sculptress has worked with all materials. Paper as a sculptural material has become important for her in the 1980ies, 1990ies and since. As with all sculptors paper has been accompanying the artist in her artistic practice since 1949. A book of 520 pages with the same title will be be presented during her exhibition.
