Sculpture & Nature

Announcing the launch of the Schlossgut Schwante Sculpture Park
with inaugural exhibition Sculpture & Nature

3 May – 4 October 2020

 

The new Schlossgut Schwante Sculpture Park opens to the public on May, 3rd 2020 with its inaugural exhibition Sculpture & Nature, showing works of leading international artists including Ai Weiwei, Richard Serra, Richard Long, Tony Cragg and Jean Arp. Featuring new commissions from Carsten Nicolai and Maria Loboda, the exhibition explores the relationship between art and nature whilst providing a rare space to explore sculpture in Eastern Germany, located only 25 km outside of Berlin and 45 minutes from Berlin-Mitte.

The exhibition Sculpture & Nature places works in conversation with their surroundings; 25 sculptures inhabit an expanse of rural greenery, offering a holistic outdoor art experience in which art and sculpture can merge. Sculptures include Echo by Carsten Nicolai, a dedicated meditation space reflecting a similar echo chamber to the one the artist discovered in Angkor Wat and a new neon work by Björn Dahlem. Jorinde Voigts interactive tree-suspended swing allows viewers to contemplate nearby works from Monika Sosnowska and Martin Creed.

Every two years, the park’s programme will renew, showcasing an international group of artists, accompanied by a series of engaging events. A “Yoga & Arts Festival”, agricultural markets, artist led talks and tours, monthly film nights led by Director Joachim von Vietinghoff, dance performances and photography classes will be regularly scheduled.

Allowing visitors to spend a whole day immersed in art and nature, the park also houses a restaurant where visitors can dine beside work by Moroccan artist Hicham Berrada and a farm shop filled with home grown and local products such as Wagyu beef, marmalades, juices and fresh vegetables. Access to Schlossgut Schwante will be free of charge for those living in Schwante.
