ANIMALS by Thomas Kühnapfel (2003)
Animalistic - The sculptures entitled ‘Animals’ (2003) refer back to similar objects from the 90s. Back then they were copper plates. Like all living things, ‘Animals’ are structured symmetrically to their axis. A kind of spine forms the body’s axis to which left and right ‘muscle’ and ‘bone’ structures are added. These ‘Animals’ radiate with something dynamic-aggressive, ready to jump and attack any minute. This image is not only emphasised through their ‘muscular’ from, but also through the energy which seems to have visibly coagulated in the moulded, strong metal. - Gerd Genger (2003)
