Galerie im Rathaus Johannisthal


Curator tour

of "Von unter den Brettern", an exhibition by Marten Schech

Milena Mercer, director of Galerie Johannisthal, provides insights into the work of Marten Schech (*1983 Halle/Saale) and the concept of the exhibition. The sculptures, created from building materials, found wood scraps, and old furniture, meander between art, design, and architecture. For this exhibition, Schech condensed the objects into an overall installation consisting of a ruin-like labyrinth of wall-installations, corridors, and historical inventory.
