Matschinsky-Denninghoff's sculptures are an impressive example of the possibilities of informal sculpture. The artists - Brigitte and Martin Matschinsky-Denninghoff - call their works "dance-like, buoyant spatial figurations." Their work is characterized by the classical basic theme of sculpture: the dialogue between body and space. To paraphrase Paul Klee, the sculpting couple sought not to make nature visible, but the forces behind it: "We basically work like nature, by building and joining, but with the help of twentieth-century technology." The untitled sculpture, created in 2002, belongs to the late phase of the artist duo's work, in which they completely dissolve the traditional sculptural volume. This work is an outstanding example of the radical transformation of form in the artists' late work, which is rarely articulated in interior sculpture to such consistent as well as poetic unity in the openness of sculptural rigor - and in all its non-objectivity reveals unmistakable references to nature (ascending flock of birds).
