This monograph was published on the occasion of solo exhibitions of Edith Oderbolz at Kunsthaus Baselland and Kunstverein Nürnberg in 2017.
Edit Oderbolz creates her sculptures and installations with simple, logical actions and placements. Through their appearance, their size, the arrangement and combination of materials, and their presence in the space, the works raise a wide range of questions on spatial conditions and their effect on our actions and being—and on redefining sculpture itself.
Reaching far beyond formal, aesthetic explorations, the artist reveals in a unique and visually powerful manner her critical engagement with the sculptural and existential meaning of space. The spatial arrangements that are created by the artist’s simple, precise gestures and actions have the ability to energize their immediate surrounding space, transforming its atmosphere.
