Terrazzo, Jura limestone, artificial stone, exposed aggregate concrete, travertine, marble, asphalt and steel are some of the materials which Mirko Tschauner twists, tilts, folds, layers, and lays against one another in strictly geometric and tectonic formations which contradicts their statuesque forms and physical mass. Both of his monumental sculptures are reminiscent of fallen stars imprisoned in a steel frame – a symbol of a shattered hope and an allegory for our prevailing apocalyptic mood in these times of post-humanism, acceleration and total control of each and every life?
