•NOTE ON Soulcraft•



In his exhibition »NOTE ON Soulcraft«, Jan Scharrelmann creates two spaces. Sculptures and wall installations correspond to their environment and make processes of transformation and creation visible.

In the first room, a nearly man-sized sculpture White Wizard is encased by Carrara marble. But in contrast to marble carved objects, the process that the work has to pass through, becomes visible. With time, stone dust falls to the ground and the partially exposed inside of the sculptural body reveals plastic bubbles formed by air,

Soulcraft, the space-filling sculpture in the second room, seems to weigh tons and sink into the ground. Iron, oxidized in long procedures, shimmers in orange to redish-brown tones. An open ring, enclosing a triangle. Three elements, growing from the floor much like dams, collide and overlap. The surface textures as much as the volume are to the fore.

The two wall installations Witchery I and Witchery II involve the massive floor sculpture and are expressive abstractions of explosions, macro- and microcosmic processes of transformation that can be interpreted in terms of the history of creation as much as natural sciences.

On Friday, December 2nd at 6pm, SOUNDTRACK was published—a set of music by Jan Scharrelmann placed in the context of the process displayed in the exhibtion. A CD Edition was available for exhibition visitors.
