Joachim Bandau - Between A and Z
The exhibition “Between A and Z” contains three bodies of work by Joachim Bandau (b. 1936 in Cologne). In addition to new wall works coated in Burmese Bagan lacquer, Bandau exhibits watercolors in which he condenses layer upon layer of thin washes of paint to create deep black forms. In the center of the exhibition stands the sculpture “Silbernes Monstrum” from 1970-71. It belongs to a series of mobile sculptures made from fiberglass that Bandau has been creating since the late 1960’s. An aggregate of diverse modules, “Silbernes Monstrum” resembles a hybrid of man, machine, and design-object.
