Gottschalk's Grove Street installation includes playful structures and projections that emphasize the ever-changing nature of our urban landscape. Then look for the surprise. In his installations, Gottschalk is known for creating hand-carved wooden marionettes as protagonists. These marionettes serve as extensions of the artist, enabling him to playfully insert himself into a variety of landscapes and environments. A single marionette is placed into this installation, representing not only the artist but also the everyman.
At Alter Space, Gottschalk's puppet-like sculptures provide a glimpse into a puppet-maker's workshop, where the artist has displayed a series of hand-carved, wooden objects from just about every stage of the process, including wood scraps and full rendered marionettes.
