Martin Walde

Martin Walde is giving you the opportunity of experiencing objects in a gallery space with an almost unlimited range of associations. As you move around the objects and try to bestow meaning upon them, there arises ample room for discussion. There is also a strong feeling for space in connection with his work, not only for the space the object actually occupies but also for the room within which the art is displayed. It is almost uncanny, the way the artist creates and is able to transmit to the beholder an acute awareness of physical space.
