Franz Erhard Walther

  • Art

Time Out says

Walther is part of the generation of German artists that includes Beuys, Kiefer, Polke and Richter, though he's not as famous here as they are, most likely because his work has always kept to a tight minimalistic script. He's best known for soft sculptures—highly reductive forms resembling sleeping bags, for example, or articles of clothing—that cross over into performance art by dint of being worn or occupied in some fashion. This interactive component has been Walther's key to exploring the relationship between sculpture and the body. The works in this show, made since 2006, take a slightly more traditional approach, perhaps, with canvas-covered foam shapes that abstractly re-create the various lines and curves of the human figure.
