Reiner Seliger works with broken materials - glass, chalk, brick, concrete, stone. In the work "Grechino" the sculptor used marble, whose splinters he assembled into a sphere. With the diminutive in the title (to "greco", grisly) he refers, on the one hand, to the size of the work, and on the other to the building material of ancient architecture and sculpture. With the spherical form, Seliger approaches a classical ideal, which, in conjunction with the noble - albeit fragmented - material, evokes the classicist idea of noble simplicity and quiet grandeur propagated by the German classicism of Goethe's time.
