Angelika Hoegerl, Spring rhombus extended-with net, 2019


The geometric formal language of Angelika Hoegerl’s sculptural wall works and free standing sculptures is based on an examination of historical architectural drawings of Gothic cathedrals. The ground plan forms of Gothic cluster pillars serve as an inspiration for the wall objects that project up to 20 cm into the room, as well as the pattern-like figurations of vault systems, that due their feature in statics, rendered the advancement of vault architecture to extrem heights possible only then. Therefore the artist sees them as architectural ‘essences’. Hoegerl removes her sculptures from the context of architectural quotations once and for all by covering them with everyday materials. Glittering bitumen felt, shiny lining fabrics and velvet in shades of sky blue as well as car headliners made of artificial leather are being used.

The meeting between firm architectural forms and soft textile surfaces give rise to visually and haptically exciting objects that on the one hand have their source code in the sacral history of the Middle Ages, and on the other hand span an arc into the profane, industrial materiality of the 21st century.
