In the exhibition »Reaktion u.s.w« (engl. »Reaction etc.«) Häusler Contemporary Zurich presents recent sculptures and works on paper by German artist Hubert Kiecol (b. 1950 in Bremen-Blumenthal). In his new series of works the artist engrosses his artistic approach with reflecting his own formal vocabulary.

Since the 1980s Hubert Kiceol developed a sculptural vocabulary that is characterized by clarity and self-evidence. The artist achieves this through decrease of simple form resulting in a condensation of simple forms. All picturesque is removed by Kiecol from his art works. It remains the definite form of familiar objects: stairways, benches, ladders, houses, windows etc. The artist dedicates his work to these things that surround us every day and binds together architecture and sculpture. Kiecol is a unique phenomenon in his generation and acquires an extraordinary position in contemporary sculpture.
