From December 2020 to August 2021, 16 sculptures by the artist Robert Schad will be on show in the park around Museum Schloss Moyland. Indoor, an exhibition of his drawings and maquettes will be on display.
Schad has been working with steel square rods since the mid-1980s. The artist divides the industrially-manufactured material into pieces with sizes that are oriented around the human body and elements in nature. He then welds the parts into sculptures that unfold in space in agile, repeatedly branching lines.
Schad chose the locations in the park for his sculptures himself. It is interesting to see the works from different sides in order to observe how, depending on your angle of vision, the structure of their lines seems to make up ever new forms that combine with the surrounding landscape and the architecture.
The drawings and maquettes will be shown in the museum from 07.03.2021 until 27.06.2021.
