Philipp Lachenmann: DELPHI Rationale


Marco Schuler

Art Award 2007 Nominee

Born in 1972 in Bühl/Baden, lives and works in Munich.

Centering on the relationship of the human body to its spatial environment, Marco Schuler's artwork deals with this subject matter both performatively and sculpturally. For his objects, Schuler uses simple materials such as cardboard, wooden four-by-fours, canvas and tar. His sculptures make us feel the tension between the search for transcendence and an immediate physical-spatial experience.
