Danish-German artist duo Anna Borgman and Candy Lenk created a series of art installation exploring the relationship between sculpture and place.
Titled ‘Wurf’ (‘Throw’), the large-scale installation features a piece made of paper maché and wood that mimics a heavy stone. Displayed in a courtyard in Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg, ‘Wurf I’ is installed in a delicate green glasshouse. ‘Wurf II’ features the stone imitation hanging from the roof of a monastery church near Leipzig.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the artworks, the duo says: “The title ‘WURF’ refers to the temporal dimension of the installation – it points to the solidification of the movement that preceded the act of enclosure.” In their practice, the artists specialize in site-specific sculptures and installations that interact with the space around them.
