Bench

Ulrike Schulze
Bench

“Bench“ takes a close-up look at the sculptural practice of Cologne-based artist Ulrike Schulze. In Schulze’s seemingly minimalistic, yet highly emotional works, familiarity of materials is deconstructed and connotations become fuzzy and unstable. While the process is always evident and methodical, the restrained (and often) reluctant use of saw, screws, paint and colored pencils questions value and production and acts more in a way of substraction than addition to a whole. Though precisely balanced in finalized settings of exhibition space or book, where “arrangement becomes the end while the form becomes the means“, these works still remain fragile, open and in a constant state of flux.
