Kristina Berning / Benjamin Greber
GWK Art Awards 2011
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.
