„The important thing is the abstract linear movement.’’ (Robert Schad)

Galerie Friese presents the work of Robert Schad (*1953) for the first time at Galerie Friese in Berlin after many years of collaboration in Stuttgart. The German artist studied at the State Academy of Fine Arts Karlsruhe and is considered an important figure in the European tradition of sculpture. He has received prestigious awards such as the Prize for Drawing at the III Biennial of Contemporary Art, Vila Nova de Cerveira, Portugal (1982), the Joan Miró International Prize for Drawing, Barcelona (1986) and the Grand Prize at the II International Biennial of Sculpture in Obidos, Portugal (1989). From 1989-1990 Schad held a guest professorship at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart. Today he lives and works in Larians-et-Munans in France and in Chamosinhos in Portugal. He is known for his large installations in public spaces.

Schad’s works combine two forms of design: Drawing and sculpture. The drawings are an elementary expression of the artist’s thoughts, ideas and abstraction. At the centre of his work is the line – as man’s original form of expression to abstract nature and connect it with human existence. His sculptures embody the movement from the drawings as a sculptural line in space and make it tangible. Schad also conceptualises this dynamic as a force in the social and cultural living space that his sculptures occupy.

This interplay between the equal media of drawing and sculpture characterises Schad’s work in a unique way. The sculptures are choreographies that have become material and are based on drawing, inviting the viewer to physically perceive other perspectives and the space. The inertia and dynamism of the material, moments of balance and imbalance invite the viewer to encounter feelings of heaviness and lightness.

Schad removes the objective functionality from steel as a building material and gives it a soul by creating a new constructive character. His sculptural language is an ode to nature and its unpredictable and mysterious movements.
