Ernst Günther Herrmann - Representing space
Each year, the Parcours de l'Art and the Petit Palais museum join forces to provide an artist with the space to show his or her works in a dialogue with the collections of the historical art at the museum.
For the 2019 edition, artist Ernst Günther Herrmann deploys his metallic sculptures in several rooms in the museum, side by side with sculpturesand paintings from the 14th and 15th centuries.
Artist Ernst Günther Herrmann raises questions about space and how we represent it, about lines and folds that make demands of him just as they did of the artists from times past. Show, and give shape, is eternally a question of where your viewpoint is.
And it is our viewpoint that is challenged as these apparently disparate works stand together and we look at each one, and open our minds.
