"Low Tide - High Tide"
Architecture and Sculpture

The field of tension between sculpture and architecture influences the work of Frankfurt-based artist Claus Bury. Over the years he has sounded out the potential of architectural sculptures in numerous works in Frankfurt locations that include temporary installations at Konstabler Wache and in the park of the Museum of Applied Art, as well as permanent sculptures on Mainzer-and Bockenheimer Landstrasse. The most recent example of his work is the "Bitterfeld Arch", which was officially opened last August. A 28 meter-high and 80 meter-wide walk-in steel sculpture was erected on an excavated hill. A ramped pathway that snakes gently upwards is suspended in the load-bearing arched structure. At the end of the path, which extends for over 540 meters, a viewing platform affords a view of the lakes and woods around Bitterfeld that have replaced the derelict open-cast mine. The exhibition is a review of Claus Burys most recent works. Its title "Low Tide - High Tide" is a reference to the synonymous sculpture that will be on view on the first floor of DAM. Set at a slight angle to the axes of the spatial grid, two wodden constructions made of doweled tiers of beames face each other. On display for the first time are guaches from Claus Burys travel diaries and his large-format black and white photographs of archaic looking concentrations of haystacks, and examples of architecture from early cultures, on which Bury`s sculptures are based. Drafts and the accompanying models will also be showcased.
