…der Liebe / …Love
In 2003/2004, sculptor Ansgar Nierhoff presented his work in the exhibition … Love at the Wilhelm Lehmbruck-Museum. The show featured 18 large-format sculptures and 12 drawings. One work, two steel balls bearing the same name as the exhibition, can still be found in Kant Park today.
The two adjacent spheres, which only vary slightly in diameter, illustrate the sense of dialogue that can be found in many of this sculptor’s works. Like love itself, a profound tension forms between the steel structures. This tension fills the surrounding space, establishing an intense relationship with the setting.
