The exhibition »Intrinsic« juxtaposes two sculptural practices that ostensibly have a reduced, even minimalist formal language, but on closer inspection create a tension or even a contradiction to Minimalism and Constructivism. The works of Werner Feiersinger and Gary Kuehn are characterized, albeit in very different ways, by subtle infiltration of the premises of minimalism – be it the ideal of pure geometric form (basic form), the lack of reference or avoidance of expression, narrativity and metaphor. The works of the two artists are not determined by an intrinsic form principle that urges for appearance, but by an intrinsic moment of disturbance and the irritation of formal sovereignty and unity.
