The Artwork

About my drawings ...

In the drawings since 2002 to 2005, I was interested in the idea of combining the perfect 3D representation of computer programs with the traditional, simple pencil drawing.
At the request of Louis Vuitton from Paris in their shop in St. Germain de Pres to make an exhibition, I developed in my 3D program unusual-looking handbags in my preferred color yellow. I printed the results with lightfast Epson color on an archival paper and drew with my beloved B6 pencil the right model figures around it. This is how I created exciting works that oscillate between two different representations of the reality. Hans Hemmert


Hemmert’s pictorial world has effectively made the bubble a basic form whose protrusions can produce a ghetto blaster, a cross, a revolver or even a complete Porsche. But these poisonously yellow objects are almost always placed in a concrete relationship with people, they use them, carry them, stand beside them. In Hemmert’s work, abstraction does not mean the loss of concrete meaning, but the amorphous dissolution of hard boundaries: the things flow out into the world into a new, as yet undefined functionality, drive out the space they claim and at the same time absorb it (not least because of their dominant coloring as well).

The Artist

HANS HEMMERT

born 1960 in Hollstadt, Germany
 

Following his years of formal art studies at the Berlin University of the Arts and St. Martin’s School of Art in London, visual artist Hans Hemmert went on to redefine the concept of sculpture. Breaking free of the very notion of the sculpture as a freestanding form in space, Hemmert reenvisions the genre with a contemporary interpretation of the relationship between sculptor, sculpture and space.

Using yellow latex balloons, Hemmert creates both a sculpture and a separate enclosed world all his own. Cocooned in his oeuvre, this visual artist takes his art to a performative level by physically engaging with and embracing the space and the objects around him.

Every shift, every gesture small or large is an interaction with the outside world. His works not only reconceive the space they are in, but also exist independently as their own space. By virtue of their tangible presence in time and space they act as traditional sculptures.

However, insomuch as there exists a world apart inside their malleable ‘walls’, one that contains its own separate artistic happening, they persevere as independent biotopes.

The exhibit, the art, is twofold. It is present on two unique planes: an exterior world visible to observers and an invisible one that only Hemmert himself is truly privy to.

Hemmert’s performative sculptures have entered the annals of contemporary photography. His work has been exhibited at some of the world’s most renowned contemporary museums including the MoMa in New York, the Museum Folkwang in Essen, the Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea - CGAC in Santiago de Compostella, the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein and the Museum of Contemporary Art Shanghai. His artwork has also been acquired by prestigious collections including those of Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art Helsinki, Malmö Konsthall, and the German Bundestag.

Hemmert’s prolific career has also been honored with ample recognition in the form of awards and grants. This includes stipends from the Senate Department for Science, Research and Culture in Berlin Germany and the Stiftung Kunstfonds, which funds contemporary artists in Germany.
