KUNSTRAUM ZUG

Katia and Gerold Schneider have established a new exhibition space in the Zug part of Lech. In December, KUNSTRAUM ZUG is pleased to present the exhibition SPECIFIC OBJECTS by Aldo Bakker. The exhibition features a collection of pouring vessels, displayed at the Kunstmuseum in The Hague in 2022, alongside larger objects in wood.

SPECIFIC OBJECTS

“The objects Aldo Bakker designs can be categorized as sculpture, furniture, and pouring vessels. For the last category Bakker uses the Dutch neologism schenkers. The verb „schenken“ in Dutch, is an ambiguous word, as it means to pour („aus-schenken“ in German), but also to give. The German noun „Schenker“, however, only refers to a person who gives, but not to a vessel that pours. But pouring is giving. That suggests that Bakker’s neologism „Schenker„ does not refer to run-of-the-mill vessels that pour water, oil, vinegar, or salt, but also to objects that give new forms to the world. Subsequently, also his sculptures and furniture are examples of new forms given to the world.

„In Bakker’s universe fascinating forms are never complex. But their lack of complexity does not mean that his forms are simple.“

Ernst van Alphen, Giving new forms to the world’, 2022

The “Haldenhof guest family” is very international – once we have been celebrating Christmas with guests from 17 nations.

Very special is the atmosphere – throughout the house you will find a fine collection of art works (carefully collected and framed over years by Mr.Schwärzler sen.). Each piece has its own little history. Very Special is his collection of engravings of Angelika Kauffmann (1741-1807) – who was raised close to Lech in a little village called Schwarzenberg. From there she went to Italy (Como and Milano), then to London where she was one of the founding members of the “Royal Academy”. Old imprints and engravings of hunting scenes along with carefully selected fabrics and frequent refurbished and modernized rooms make the Haldenhof the ideal location for a holiday in Austria.
