Wurf II by Borgman | Lenk

View all 5 Photos

Artists Anna Borgman from Denmark and Candy Lenk from Germany have collaborated for years, starting with their first exhibition as Borgman | Lenk, the Architectural Intervention installation, exhibited in 2007 in Berlin. Their work is conceptual and features visual and logical contrasts. Some installations address the metaphysical, others the passage of time and its effects on a building’s structure and design, but most use materials in an entirely different context compared to their original purpose. Wurf II is the continuation of Wurf (throw), and uses the same replica of a monolithic black stone, now in a completely different way. If the first project saw the giant sculpture placed within a glasshouse, this time it hangs from a 13 meter steel cable in the 580 year old Monastery Church of Grimma, located near Leipzig. Suspended just a few centimeters above the stone paved floor, the black object contrasts the space it inhabits with its smooth surface, intense tone, and implied solidity and permanence. By contrast, the walls of the church are slowly decaying, though the building is, in fact, enduring. Wurf II is made of wood, paper mache, and steel, and it is part of the scholarship exhibition Transfer KK 2016. Images courtesy of Borgman | Lenk.
