Reflection on Objects and Boulders

Reinhard Klessinger, 2002/ 2000

    By means of the simple, unobtrusive act of sheathing a stone, which transforms it into a gleaming zinc object, at first glance almost indistinguishable from the original stone, the artist introduces a reflective object and a moment of duplication and mirroring into an ensemble rooted in nature.

    In so doing, he encourages us as viewers to engage with the altered dynamic and to find a different approach to sculpture. As a result of the artist’s subtle intervention, the stone – although in and of itself unchanged and still referencing its natural origin – takes on a different, aesthetic dimension.
