Conceptual Art.

Albert lives and works in Paris and Nice. Stéphane Albert enquires into things and their relative individuality. He also plays upon the ordinariness of his family name, which he has made a subject of his work as an artist. He 'draws', which is to say, writes, copies of pages of books having characters by the name of Albert. By this process, he shows the desperation of the contemporary hero. In the same vein, he also produces formal duplicates in wood of various familiar objects (garbage, crates, palettes, rubble), achieving almost their dematerialisation before giving them a new singularity through his artistic gesture....

Born 1957, in Fritzlar.

Sculptor, draughtsman. Figures, portraits.

Stephan Balkenhol was a pupil of Ulrich Rückriem. Influenced by Minimal Art and Conceptual Art, Balkenhol's mode of expression is nonetheless figurative. He carves in wood (often birch), later painting it to produce heads or large figures, which he sometimes integrates into city life as trompe-l'oeils in squares or buildings. His sculptures are monumental in three dimensions or almost flat, painted casually and still bearing the mark of the burin. They do not represent specific beings but people encountered in the crowd, distinguishable in their physiognomies, and sometimes by the colours of their clothes. In the same way, he presents animals such as penguins, snails, bears or lions, setting them in group scenes. He started to add a symbolic note to his work with ...
