Sculpture for sceptics, sculpture for intellectuals – sculpture for everyone: between 23 June and 4 August 2019, this exhibition at Galerieverein Leonberg showcases the "All in" series of works as well as sculptures under the title of "Zu Höherem berufen" [Aspiring to Higher Things]. Free admission.
Have you ever tried to imagine what it will look like, the sculpture for everyone? Not only should it wish to cautiously interact with the cultural elite, but to eagerly listen to what people really have to say and not to consider itself too good to have an offer to talk ready for the "common people". In a playful manner, Ottmar Hörl has dealt with the question of who is "everyone". What he has come up with is his concept of a sculpture for everyone. At the same time, he is making reference to prevailing criteria of classification that conjure up an individual image of sculpture in those who look at it, demonstrating also a singular way of categorising stimuli provided by art. Anyone reminded of pigeon-holing or labelling should think twice!
The "All in" exhibition is on view at Galerieverein Leonberg from 23 June to 4 August 2019. Opening hours: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.
Special opening hours on Monday, 24 June, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Public guided tours of the exhibition on 14 July and 4 August, at 4 p.m.
Free admission. Guided tours for groups or pupils, also available outside opening hours, should be booked in advance. Please contact the arts & culture office (Kulturamt), phone +49 (0)7152-990-1400.
