The positions shown in the exhibition »Vorwand – Pretext« challenge the conventions of image and sculpture and their spatial effect in humorous and ironic ways. Their play with moments of surprise undermines conventional viewing habits.
Thorsten Goldberg’s work “Miss Eislingen” calls performative and participatory aspects. Flower vases arranged linearly on the floor, donated by friends and members of the Deutscher Künstlerbund (German Artist Association), are stocked daily with a bouquet selected by the artist. The multiplication of the flowers as well as the process of wilting and decay rely on the continuous variability of the vase sculpture and thus on its temporal dimension. At the same time, the floral arrangement transforms into a still-life that can be experienced spatially and plastically.
Thorsten Goldberg (*1960) studied at the Art Academy in Stuttgart and has been invited to solo exhibitions in the last years to Fundacio Miro, Barcelona/ES; Laznia Museum of Contemporary Art Gdansk/PL; Gerisch Foundation Neumünster/DE. Permanent work in public spaces can be visited in Berlin and other German cities, as well as in Poland, Norway and Canada.
Goldberg is a member of various committees for public art in Berlin and Vienna. He has taught at the art academies in Münster, Munich, Linz and was recently Professor of Art and Media in Kiel. He is also involved in selection and organization of competitions as well as documentation and archiving projects of art in public space.
