GWK Art Awards 2011
26 November 2011 – 29 January 2012, Lippold Gallery (1st floor)
For the first time Marta Herford is host to the winners of the art awards worth Euro 8,000 each of the GWK-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Westfälischen Kulturarbeit, the Society for the Promotion of Westphalian Cultural Work, Münster.
A high-calibre expert jury selected the sculptors Kristina Berning and Benjamin Greber as prize winners for 2011. They are exhibiting selected works in the Lippold Gallery in the Museum Marta Herford:
“No More Illusions” gives us an insight into Kristina Berning’s sculptural oeuvre. Her objects are made from everyday materials which retain their raw, untreated character and are developed to form fragile constructions by the artist. With “Almagia 2” Benjamin Greber presents an installation which gives his sculptural project of an imaginary, globally operating corporation the space-encompassing form of a large warehouse.
The opening of the exhibition will take place within the framework of the award ceremony for the GWK prizes in literature, music and art in the Marta Forum, at which the music and literature award winners will provide a high-quality program.
Catalogs for both artists will be published at the end of the exhibition.
