Jörg Gläscher shows in the monastery garden of the city museum a “wave” built of fine-grained branches, a form of a natural phenomenon consisting of water, familiar at first sight – piled high, just before it breaks, static in its powerful presence of a sculpture. Jörg Gläscher’s wave is about the energy of water.
His works in the exhibition are one chapter of a larger group of works, the “diary complex”. Jörg Gläscher developed the work during the Corona Pandemic 2020-21 in Hamburg and in Leipzig. From his own experiences during the pandemic he created different photographic approaches, reflections and representations about the power and violence of nature. While the first works were still purely photographic, with the series on wooden waves he began to intervene in nature himself, installing objects and sculptures in the forest.
The preview of the exhibition at the City Museum, which is intended to arouse curiosity about the entire project “Panta rhei. Water Moves” is on Friday, Aug. 25, at 4 p.m. Jörg Gläscher will be present.
The entire exhibition project “Panta rhei” will be formally opened for invited guests on Saturday, Aug. 26, 4 p.m., in the Audience Hall in the castle. At 6 p.m. the big museum night with all museums in Paderborn and in Schloß Neuhaus will start.
During the museum night on August 26, 6 p.m. to midnight, the Leipzig photographer will be a guest in the city museum.
