Brigitte und Martin Matschinsky-Denninghoff - Ideen des Informel | Art Store
The exhibition "Brigitte and Martin Matschinsky-Denninghoff - Ideas of Informel" presents 120 abstract metal sculptures and drawings covering various creative phases from the estate of the Berlin artist duo. VAN HAM Art Estate, in cooperation with the Foundation Matschinsky-Denninghoff, is pleased to offer these works in the following catalogue. The exhibition will take place from 31 August to 16 September 2023 on the occasion of the ART Curatorial Award and DC OPEN 2023.
Brigitte Meier-Denninghoff (1923-2011) and Martin Matschinsky (1921-2020) have been active as an artist couple since 1955 and have signed their works under the joint name "Brigitte and Martin Matschinsky-Denninghoff" since 1970. Their oeuvre - largely determined by their work with metal - is one of the most important independent contributions to post-war art in Germany. They explore the interplay between light and shadow, shell and space in a variety of ways. The curved forms of solitary, welded and twisted rods and wires unfold energetically into the space. Steel, copper and brass are sometimes experimentally combined with found objects such as shells, stones or bones and lyrically titled. Their iconic, monumental stainless steel sculptures have made their mark on public spaces worldwide.
