Artwork in Focus is the second chapter of the gallery's 'In Focus' series. Every week the gallery presents a viewing room featuring artworks that are available for purchase. This week we are presenting two works by Heinz Mack: Lamellar Sculpture with Eight Saw Blades (1954) and Sand Relief (1968). This viewing room is the final part of three presentations that explore Heinz Mack's practice. Our first two instalments exploring Mack's practice focused on his artistic relationship with more traditional media, including painting and works on paper. This final instalment presents two works which hold a lens to a more experimental approach within the artist's practice.
Lamellar Sculpture with Eight Saw Blades (1954) will be included in the Heinz Mack exhibition at the Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf, which opens to the public on 11th February. The exhibition marks Heinz Mack's 90th birthday, and will focus on the first three decades of the artist's career, with important and rarely-shown works from major institutions and private collections from around the world.
