ALF BACHMANN   ALF LECHNER

HIMMEL       WASSER         STAHL

 

The Lechner Museum is delighted to premiere early pastels and oil-paintings by the sculptor Alf Lechner (1925 - 2017) and works of his teacher, the navy- and landscape-painter Alf Bachmann (1863 - 1956) in a new juxtaposition. Bachmann taught Lechner the art of landscape painting, the engagement with the interaction of the elements. This laid the foundation for Lechner's path to abstract steel sculpture.
Alf Bachmann, born close to Danzig in 1863, is famous for the depiction of coastlines and seascapes, for his compositions of water, clouds and light. He managed to capture volatile moments of nature in its essence and to condense them atmospherically in pastel and oil.
"The infinity of untouched nature captivates me" wrote Bachmann himself. It was him, who discovered the talent of Lechner early and showed the school-boy the path to fine art. Lechner remained faithful and connected to his teacher for all of his life in the shared fascination of the elements of nature. They inspired his work with the material steel.  He conquered steel with fire and water, exposed it again to the elements of nature and created new landscapes. You will experience this fascination also in Lechner's last installation work  Labyrinth (2007-2017). The majority of the works by Alf Bachmann, kindly on loan from the collection of the Landesmuseum Schleswig, Schloss Gottorf and the Alf Lechner Foundation will be exhibited publicly for the very first time.

PAST EXHIBITION

 

ALF LECHNER | KALOTTEN and MAROTTEN

March 13th, 2016 - April 30th 2017

 

"Kalotte", which is a term originating in the French language, describes a flat part of a ball, whose bulge is smaller than a half ball, which means that the diameter of the cut is smaller than twice the radius.

Alf Lechner's KALOTTEN are massive, forged ball-part elements with various diameters and sizes, which are placed on the floor, individually in space or in clusters or formations. It appears as if the ball-parts are full balls, sinking into the ground and the floor is acting as a horrizontal cut. Comparable to icebergs, who show only a small part of their actual size above sealevel.

In kontrast to these rather flat steal elements are Alf Lechner's MAROTTEN, also a term driving from French, describing something as peculiarity, mood, fixed idea.They appear strange, thin walled, rough surfaced, somewhat sharp, in parts with holes, relief-style surfaces, which the artist tightened into a frame, where they are somewhat confined - only to be placed vertically or horizontally into the exhibition space.

The works allow to be viewed from all around, no surface appears simillar to the next. The plasticity of the surfaces moves

Ihre Allansichtigkeit ist hervorzuheben, keine Fläche gleicht der anderen. Die Plastizität der Oberflächen bewegt sich in dem Spannungsfeld zwischen z.B. filigraner Fragilität und massiver Kompaktheit oder strömendem Fließen und formender Erstarrung.

Mit dieser Werkgruppe, - zu Lechners Spätwerk gehörend-, führt der Künstler die Perfektion ad absurdum, die üblicherweise sein Werk charakterisiert. Lechners Vision der Entgrenzung technischer Verfahren und Machbarkeit findet Niederschlag in der malerischen Oberflächenfarbigkeit und reliefartigen Plastizität der gerahmten Plastiken alias MAROTTEN.

 

Mrs. Dr. Simone Schimpf, Director of the Museum for Concrete Art in Ingolstadt, inaugurated the exhibition on March 13th, 2016
