Norbert Kricke

1922, Dusseldorf1984, Dusseldorf

Norbert Kricke (1922-1984) defines space as a function of movement in time and in analogy to modern scientific knowledge rather than in the traditional Euclidean way and in terms of volume. Unlike traditional solid sculptures made of marble or bronze forming a closed surface and excluding the surrounding space, the delicate steel lines of his immaterial and weightless spatial sculptures open up to the space and to the viewer, reflecting their movement in space. They become energetic vehicles whose impulses radiate beyond matter into open space.
