Inge Mahn / Nora Schultz

Beyond pairing two generations side by side in this duo exhibition of Inge Mahn and Nora Schultz, the installations present two sculptural positions.

By posing her abstracted, scaled and extensive sculptures in relation to one another, Inge Mahn’s works condense the essence of objects. Move and rest, weightiness and levity as well as the structures of Villa Salve Hospes’s space are visualized in the different constellations of objects and, underscored by temporary architectural interventions.

In her Centre Dental series, Nora Schultz turns to the dematerialization and activation of sculptures. Filmed with drone cameras and moved by hidden performers, the haptic quality of the sculptures recedes into the background in service of the overall appearance of the film, allowing the sculptures to become temporary actors in the film. Sequentiality and setting are decisive for this body of work, which has been reconstituted in the space of the Kunstverein’s evolving installation.
