Volumes, housings and architectural structures, alongside biological reference fields, form the core themes of the sculptural work of Matthias Stuchtey (* 1961). The artist examines these elements, deconstructs them and new spaces within the room emerge.



Matthias Stuchtey uses seemingly everyday materials such as chipboard or other semi-finished products from the building trade and puts them in new contexts to create formations that sometimes appear constructivist.


Used things such as furniture or fixtures from past exhibitions are also used, sometimes even clothing, whose history is inscribed in the sculptures and these are encrypted into “encoded commodities”.


From these “coded raw materials” Stuchtey first develops a (spatial) element, from which he allows his modular systems to grow and condense process-wise.


The resulting sculptural works associate growing urban landscapes or nesting colonies and reveal themselves as sensitive ordering systems between seemingly precisely separated and nested interior spaces, exterior spaces and surrounding areas - in short: they open up spaces for reflection.


Space and urbanity become an artistic image in order to rethink changes, boundaries and views of a (experience) space in contemporary human coexistence.
