Thesis and antithesis likewise characterize the precarious, broken-down figurations themselves; they are shaped from the liquid, and solidified, yet seem feeble enough to make one fear for their continued existence. In this context, Städeli operates with the coinage “compostition.” As a design material, bronze would be entirely absurd, as would a painterly whitewashing, i.e., transformation of the sculptural material. Color sneaks into Städeli’s works in a cautious manner; thus, the support material remains tangible to such a degree that text passages taken from newspapers may be studied.
Martin Städeli, born 1962 in Basel, Switzerland, has lived and worked in Berlin since 1988.
Studied fine arts at KGSZ, Zurich and HdK, Berlin. Co-initiator and curator of the exhibition spaces the room (1994-95) and WBD (2000-06), Berlin. Artist in Residence, CCA, Andratx, Mallorca and Casa Zia Lina, Elba, Italy. Teaching positions Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee.
