Jörg Plickat - Flight

Mentioned by German Goethe Institute (Germany’s Federal Institute of Culture)


“[..] Jörg Plickat (b. 1954) creates sculpture in stone, steel, and bronze. He lives in Hamburg and Bredenbek (Schleswig-Holstein), and studied at the Muthesius School in Kiel. [..] The intellectual aspect of Plickat’s sculpture involves the impact of relationships between volume, material, situation, and light and shade. His simplified geometrical formal language is comprehensible worldwide, unifying both intimacy and monumentality[..]”
