More Info


The art of Michael Reiter (b. 1952; lives and works in Frankfurt am Main) is based on the principle of variability, which was pioneered in the 1960s by artists such as Charlotte Posenenske. Created with a saw, the unpretentious "Front and Rear Spiral" (2013) raises interesting questions about major aspects of contemporary sculpture and explores the relationship between surface and space. Without putting it down, Reiter uses a jigsaw to transform a thin piece of plywood, of which one side has clearly been painted black all over and the left completely untreated, into a continuous spiral shape. Expanding simultaneous view of both the front and rear: black and wood-colored areas alternate constantly in the spiral shape, coming to the fore and retreating, but are always visible at the same time. All photographs in this publication show one and the same sculpture, and one can assume that despite the complex diversity of form visible in the images, they far from exhaust the work's possibilities. With a contribution by Daniel Marzona.
