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", Greek) he refers on the one hand to the size of the work, on the other hand to the building material of ancient architecture and sculpture. With the spherical form, Seliger approaches a classical ideal, which is connected to the noble - albeit fragmented - material and the classicist idea of noble simplicity and quiet grandeur propagated by the German classicism of Goethe's time. The materiality of the stone contrasts with the effect of the brick, which Seliger develops more than other of his fractured objects as archisculpture, with reference to archaic buildings.
