Whether in sculpture, in drawing, or in architecture, Walter Pichler has created an extraordinarily diverse and precise body of work in all of these fields over the past decades. And yet, in retrospect, it becomes apparent that there have essentially been a few central themes that have preoccupied him from time to time, that appear again and again in different forms throughout the phases of his work. Among these motifs, it is obviously — and perhaps not surprisingly — the head that Walter Pichler has ceaselessly sought and found form in both sculpture and drawing. It therefore seemed obvious to pursue this fact for once, and the Berlin exhibition offered a perfect opportunity to do so. With a whole series of works from recent years that have never been shown before, as well as important examples that demonstrate this chain of motifs in the past, the exhibition also provides an overview of the work that is one of the decisive contributions to European art of our day.
