Detailed description

Sculptural group "Sequence", bronze version

Siegfried Neuenhausen's "Sequence" is situated in the field of tension between "rising" and "sinking". The bronzes show an almost Kafka-typical situation: a retreat in instalments disguised as a flight forward. The group of figures can be given new meanings by changing the arrangement. Even small variations create significant mood changes.

4-pcs sculptural group made of fine bronze, cast by hand. Limited edition of 99 copies, numbered and signed. Size 10 x 5,5 / 10 x 9,5 / 10 x 13 / 10 x 21 cm (h/w). ars mundi Exclusive Edition.

About Siegfried Neuenhausen

The sculptor, painter and graphic artist Siegfried Neuenhausen (born in 1931) studied philosophy and painting. In addition to his exhibitions, he was a visiting professor in the USA and Indonesia, among other places. He has been involved in social projects since the 1970s. Neuenhausen has been awarded the 1st class of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Siegfried Neuenhausen articulates his very own form of social criticism in his sculptures – but never in a super-teacherly manner but rather with a subtle irony. He leaves the viewer room for interpretation and projection.

The small-format sculptures can participate in the life of their owner. They fit into any niche and are silent objects of contemplation, of the haptic and conversation. It is a feature of Neuenhausen's "miniature stills" that they are not one-dimensional. They do not impose a "view of things" on the viewer but rather remain open to their own interpretations and projections. This raises the question of who is protected by the boundaries that surround his sculptures – the environment from man or man from the environment.

The artist creates situations with humour, which he has gained through exact observation of people and their behaviour in everyday life. His classical "man" always wears a coat and hat.
