Spaces And Its Potential Sculptures
Klaus Pinter is a sculptor with a very special taste in art, starting in 1967 in Vienna, he paired up with two architect colleagues, thus combining architecture and engineering with his aesthetic ideas and created these futurist form of installations. The secret to his works are in pneumatic structures folded very carefully, and usage of lightweight and translucent materials in order to make them look levitated and adrift.
There’s a playfulness and humor in his works seen in his forms mostly. The curved and circular shapes twisting in each other creating an endless shape, such as “The Cocoon-2010” and “Rotor 1-Galerie Piece Unique, Paris”. The sites that was chosen for the sculptor’s exhibition makes an atmosphere resembles fluidity, plasticity and lightness , and creates a surreal space for its visitors.
I like the design; it is industrial, creative, and very pure. I think what makes it special is the techniques… it reminds me of Da Vinci’s workshop with his flying machines and aerial screws hanging from the roof. Just imagine experiencing these sculptures in that space!
