Literature: Freimann, Christoph / Joly, Jean Baptiste, Sculptures 1988 - 1990, Essen 1990, Fig. plate 3


"... think to yourself that the cube is by definition / of finite form, / but that the twelve edges / that form it can / arrange themselves for the eye in an infinite number of combinations." In his poem in praise of Christoph Freimann, Eugen Gomringer sums up what has characterized the artist's sculptural work since 1979: taking the liberty to create an inexhaustible abundance of non-objective figures and at the same time limiting himself uncompromisingly in the counted reduction - in the wake of the 'Concrete Art' propagated by the Dutch multi-talent Theo van Doesburg in 1934 and postwar minimalism. Against the traditional intention of sculptural design, Freimann playfully develops his works out of the angular edge and the surface.
