Stefan Burger arrived at the Sitterwerk studio, where he has been working on photographic and sculptural works, at the end of July. For the Open Studio, he is presenting the new Sitterwerk edition ‹Sankt Galler Schwund›.
Starting from the process of shrinkage in the process of casting metal, with ‹Sankt Galler Schwund› Stefan Burger uses loss as a sculptural strategy. The sculpture consists of a laundry drying stand reduced in size by 5 percent, along with a single sock. In contrast to the sculptural process of enlarging to scale, which often requires space, the sculpture ‹Sankt Galler Schwund› cannot only be folded up practically and stowed away behind furniture, but already also comes with the offer of its own dissolution from the very beginning already.
