The sculptor foundryman
Klaus Cenkier works as sculptor and casts figures and reliefss in his foundry in Ziesar. Artistically he’s moving in a world where kolophonium, asphalt, wax, plaster, bronze, hot-fires, liver of sulfur and many things are playing an important role, more like a witches kitchen than an artist studio. Creating from ordinary ingredients artifacts that outlast time is a lengthy process and requires a lot of effort and skills. Cenkiers art represented here is driven on the one hand by the controversy with my life and on the other hand by the desire to create beautiful objekts that speak for themselves.
