Temporary Artworks by Klaus Lenzen
Towering cranes are part of the urban image in a big city like Düsseldorf, moving heavy components and machines at dizzying heights above construction sites. Mats and bars of iron float silently, seemingly aimless, lingering for a while and being transformed into temporary works of art until they finally disappear into the building for eternity.
For many months I visited numerous construction sites, waiting for a suitable subject, often in vain. The minimalist representation directs the viewer's gaze to the essentials: works of art in transition.
