STEEL is what connects the main core of artists in the WerkStatt44 – we all work with this multifaceted material, each of us exploring it in a different way.
From massive kinetic creatures by KAI, to vibrating anatomically correct dancers by Peter Schütze, to intricate structures and wild beasts build from small particles by VELA, to street art combining spray paint with rust and bluing by CAZ.L ….
But there is even more to steel than that!
Steel can be strong, sharp, dangerous, but also soft, bendy, vibrating with every movement in its surroundings, it can carry tones, but it could break too, it reacts to the smallest changes in temperature, thus “breathing” and pulsating with the rhythm of life!
And this comes to show when we meet our friends and colleagues working in other fields of art – we constantly collaborate with dancers, musicians, Djs, video artists, performance artists, painters, installations makers… They inspire us in our creative process and we inspire them, offering them our workshop and our steel creations as a playground, as a space and time in which they can unfold they own creativity, go wild in an open-for-everything environment, interact with our art and create new forms of art, a new alloy coming out of the creative melting pot called WerkStatt44!
