DESCRIPTION

OLAF HOLZAPFEL (1969, GÖLITZ, GDR) CURRENTLY HAS HIS FIRST SOLO EXHIBITION IN BELGIUM AT ALBERT BARONIAN, BRUSSELS. IN 2012 HIS WORK WAS SELECTED FOR THE "GERMANY 2. INTERNATIONALE KUNST IN DEUTSCHLAND" EXHIBITION AT THE SPRENGEL MUSEUM, HANNOVER AND THE SUBJECT OF A SOLO EXHIBITION AT GALERIE GEBR. LEHMANN AND THE LEONHARDI MUSEUM, DRESDEN. 

AT THE GALLERY TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF RECENT WORKS ARE PRESENTED: HEUBILDER (HAY PICTURES) AND FALTUNGEN (FOLDINGS). BOTH DEAL WITH THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE BODY, INTERIOR SPACE, LANDSCAPE AND ENVIRONMENT. HOLZAPFEL'S HEUBILDER DEPART FROM THE LANDSCAPE WHERE TRADITIONAL TECHNIQUES ARE OBSERVED AND OUT OF WHICH PHYSICAL OBJECTS ARE GENERATED IN CLOSE COLLABORATION WITH HIS STUDIO ASSISTENTS. SIMILAR FORCES COME INTO PLAY WITH HIS "FALTUNGEN", MADE OF SHEETS OF SYNTHETIC MATERIALS WHICH ARE HEATED AND SHAPEN IN A SEQUENTIAL CHAIN OF ACTION BY VARIOUS PERSONS. 

THE TALK WILL TAKE PLACE AT THE GALLERY AND WILL TAKE ONE HOUR APPROXIMATELY. AFTER THIS THERE WILL BE THE POSSIBILITY TO ASK QUESTIONS AND DISCUSS INFORMALLY.
