Born in 1939 in Fulda, Germany. From 1957 to 1967 Franz Erhard Walther studied Applied Arts in Offenbach. At the Beaux-arts in Frankfurt and at the Beaux-arts in Dusseldorf. His first personal exhibition took place in 1966 in Aix-la-Chapelle. He moved to New York from 1967 to 1973. A conceptual artist, he was concerned with the relationships between language, space and work. He lives and works in Hamburg.

Werkform.

In the early 1960s, Franz Erhard Walther became interested in “the process and the temporal dimension of the work”. He makes drawings. Folding papers. Installations of simple shapes and dollages. In 1963, he introduced action as a “form of work [Werkform]”. His intervention and that of the spectator become decisive.
Subsequently, he creates Wall Formations. Huge wall panels as a place to build. In the nineties, he offered installations, the Configurations. The spectator’s participation is always necessary to bring these “floor and wall” works to life. Handle them, write the “open book” with your hands, feet and your mind.

He tells us.

“My real intention is to raise awareness by positioning myself within the work. I am, as a person, totally a plastic material in the classic sense of the term […]. I complete the work, I bring it integrity. Then it is only through the presence of my body that it becomes what it should be. By functioning as a plastic element, as a spatial element. As a classical sculptural element, the body can itself become a sculpture.”

Through my work I strive to articulate overlapping systems. Hierarchical structures. And the polarity of power dynamics. I am always searching to understand the movement of power. By tracing the violence that occurs when power structures collide. I draw inspiration from sources such as geopolitics. History. Pop culture. Ecology, and parapsychology. I often overlap different methodologies from multiple disciplines. Until new perspectives emerge. So that I can construct visual poetries to reveal and examine the systematic violence of our time.

I am a visual artist based in London. Physicality underpins a creative practice with my skin. As a primary source for corporeal artwork and imaginative transformation. Compulsive Skin Picking dominated my life for more than 20 years. But through a background in dance and theatre. I also confronted the condition to harness creative repair and recovery. Also, I create intimate artworks. Photographs and performances exploring the body. Focused repetitive behaviour of skin picking.

Exhibition.

I have exhibited and performed my work in therapuetic settings. Galleries and venues in the UK. Australia. USA and Japan. I aspire to de-stigmatise Compulsive Skin Picking. Raise awareness and advocate recovery through public talks. My story and art has been profiled on BBC World Service Outlook. BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour, and BBC Arabic. TV’s art programme Afaq. My studio is on Havelock Walk in South London. Finally, a creative community of sculptors, painters, designers. Photographers and other visual artists.

I take my first point of reference from crowds and large gatherings of people. Looking for the detail in the ordinary but also the commonality within the group. Photo are used to still movement and to reveal details. Hence,  these photographs are then used to create drawings. I sew these drawings onto fabric using a sewing machine. I use transparent fabric and I leave loose threads. Thus revealing and celebrating the process of sewing. Transparent cloth alllows me to layer the drawings on top of each other. So to build up a crowd which allows us to see through it.
My work also includes screen printed buildings, windows, roofs and skylines. These elements create a sense of atmosphere and build links between the people and their location. The black line of the thread is a seductive one, raised from the surface it is tactile and sightly fuzzy at the edges, velvety. This is one of the things that draws me to the sewing machine rather than the pencil.

William Cobbing
Sculptor, visual artist
Location: London (UK)

 

 

 

 

Starting from a sculptural sensibility. William Cobbing’s artistic practice encompasses a wide range of media. Especially the video. The photography and the installation. Performative encounters are designed with a material, such as clay. In which the protagonists are engaged in a repetitive and absurd cycle. Manipulating shapeless surfaces. The works evoke notions of entropy. It emphasizes how the earth’s matter is irreversibly dispersed. Giving place to a definitive blurring of the borders between the body and the landscape. While suspending the possibility of conclusion.

Exhibition.

Since 2000 Cobbing has exhibited all over the world. In group exhibitions such as A Secret History of Clay Tate Liverpool (2004). Room with a View Gemeente Museum. The Hague (2006). Drifting Clouds Furini Arte Contemporanea, Italy (2007. Personal exhibitions at Galerie Fons Welters, Amsterdam (2002). Netwerk Center for Contemporary Art, Belgium (2007).
Cobbing has co-organized (with Rosie Cooper) a series of exhibitions and events on the concrete poet Bob Cobbing. He exhibited a series of works produced at Hatton Gallery and mimed in 2014. In 2019, Cobbing held his solo Haptic Loop at the Cooke Latham Gallery in London. In October 2020 at the Princessehof National Ceramics Museum in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands.

Visual artist

Rasmus Myrup (born 1991) is a Danish artist working between Paris and Copenhagen. His work is a synthesis of the big and the small. Influenced by our evolutionary history and our belonging to the natural world, he studies the arc of humanity’s natural roots in the context of personal human emotions and relationships. Working mainly with sculpture and drawing, his works fit into a post-humanist context, trying to escape the separation from nature that past centuries have put forward.

The interventions of the artist Stefan Visan are always rather surreal. But they always start from ordinary objects: a silver safety pin pierces green leaves. A burning candle is cut and placed in a tilted position. The lame spaghetti extends the tines of the fork. Installation.

His work is very complex, he spends hours or even days fiddling with in his workshop. He builds something unique with bizarre combinations without any prior intention for what he is going to create.
Stefan Visan does not limit his artistic approach to a single medium. He’s always trying to come up with something new.
“I always explore different things, from painting to collage. Through video collage, photography, illustration. For example, collage is a break with painting and the opposite. Everything I create is handmade, nothing digital ”.
The result is a series of surrealist interventions that mix together everyday objects making them unique and very but very weird!

Nike Ramage makes machines that move, or appear to move. Machines not useful but sculptural. With weaknesses and flaws. Ticks and squeaks. Too complicated and underperforming.

Some ask the viewer to put them in motion. Others have their own life. They are made from a motley collection. Disparate parts, encompassing lost and broken machine parts. As well as household items. They are machines born from ideas but bypassing utility. Machines steeped in the human condition. Absurd and uncertain.
