ROLAND REITER #AMBRILLANTENGRUND
Glowing out of the creamy darkness the sculptures by Roland Reiter transform the space into a secret cabinet of wonder.
A ram-like creature - a hybrid of sheepskin and bike - remains frozen in vaulting above a bearskin.
We are located at the Garage at Brilliantengrund. A place where the passions of the hotel staff - Art, Fashion & Cycling – are getting together in different formats to engage in a dialogue.
Two massive conglomerates of skateboard decks are telling stories of past expeditions, a neon red helmet merges into a glowing match head while a small, stuffed bird is coquettishly presenting a straw in its beak.
Organic material and machine-made objects are morphing tremendously back and forth. Taking form at the junction of concepts of the body, energy and freedom the sculptures of Roland Reiter provide potential totems for a road conquering community.
Reiters works stand at the beginning of the quarterly exhibition series #ambriliantengrund which brings sculpture into focus on a quarterly basis.
Starting in autumn 2016 selected colleagues (Roman Pfeffer, Hans Schabus, among others) will be invited to follow up the discourse.
