Christoph Platz (Bochum)

The artist works with associations. His sculptures represent the outer shell, devoid of content. Clothing without people; on the walls of the room, in a specially produced showcase desk, or used as a stool. They symbolize travel; clothes for the trip, utensils, and souvenirs for home. Everyday objects intricately carved in limewood develop a mysterious inner life in the hotel room. Fantastic and simply beautiful.


b. 1964, lives in Tokyo. Studied sculpture 1985-92 at AdbK, Karlsruhe, and Kunstakademie Münster. Regularly spends time in Japan since 1997; first exhibition there: 2002.
