- the first sculpture for the Berlin airspace - is permanently
installed on the roof of the 14th floor of the DaimlerServices headquarters on Potsdamer Platz and completes the sculptural
ensemble of the collection Daimler.
It is a metal sculpture which resembles a flying space element
that draws attention to it with a high banner.
starting point for Auke de Vries' sculptural thinking is the
concept of a body without pre-given definitions: without mass,
without volume, without center. The question is: How can I react
to the consequences of scientific developments, from the theory
of relativity to bio-politics? The sculpture must give visual
expression to the experience of profound instability in all
situations and all agreements. A visual expression that grasps
and visualizes this experience as positive free scope for the
imagination. In keeping with this approach, Auke de Vries' sculptures
are interconnections of potential energies, they create "space"
for new perspectives on reality.
