Sculpture is a broad field. »To view« means to look at something closely. The »14 Views« of sculptress Renate Wiedemann comprise her artistic spectrum (2001-13) of objects, sculptures, and installations in a box with fourteen individual booklets. Each handmade booklet presents one theme in an installation or group of works. Altogether, they show the connecting lines of the form language in the artist’s oeuvre.
Title and language play an important role in Renate Wiedemann’s work. Language, as an essential component, is a resonance space that gives the things that are shown a specific, open direction – a direction in which the viewer can move even though he was given no clear destination toward which he has to feel or think.
