Eberhard Linke’s Sculptures in Deutsche Bank ArtSpace

Figures that with their cracked surfaces recall past epochs: Eberhard Linke’s terracotta steles reduce the human body to its basic form and are reminiscent of archaic idols. Now works by the Villa Massimo award winner are on view in the Deutsche Bank ArtSpace. In the lobby of the Frankfurt Towers, extraordinary projects and works by German and international artists have been on exhibit since the beginning of the year. The program began in January with the presentation of the “Vochol,” a VW Beetle which Mexican artisans decorated with millions of glass beads.

At the center of Eberhard Linke’s work is the human figure. His preferred material is clay, which he predominantly works using a technique he calls sculptural hollow building. Linke does not grasp his themes statically, but incorporates the figure’s extended movement into the representation. Many of Linke’s works are located in public spaces. Examples are Mann vom Castrum (Man from Castrum) at the Ministry of the Interior in Mainz” as well as the Gauklerbrunnen Fountain and the group of bronze sculptures entitled Annäherung (Convergence) in the center of Dortmund. A terracotta version of this work is on view in the new ArtSpace.

Visitors can experience his sculptural work in all its diversity in the Barbara and Eberhard Linke Foundation in Flonheim, around 80 kilometers from Frankfurt. The old winery houses the artist’s studio and many of his works. The sculpture garden and the barn buildings contain Linke’s large sculptures. Flonheim is an ideal destination for a spring day. Aside from the historic town center and the numerous wineries, there are a few Rhine-Hessian “Trulli” nearby – snow-white 18th-century vintner’s huts which bear a striking resemblance to the round buildings found in southern Italy.
