WILLEM HARBERS (1967, RHEDEN) SCULPTURES

Willem Harber’s sculptures resemble machines, but not machines that expedite life, they delay it. Stationary equipment.

It takes some time before you can produce slow moving images in as quick a pace as these. By suggesting they are

being charged, as spectator you get the notion that energy is flowing.

 

“Harbers’ sculptures are full of duality. With there technical appearance, the machine-installations conjure up associations

of dynamics, but also that of stagnation. Brute force and masculine potency opposite soft, virgin white forms. It is

captivating art, because it is versatile and therefore rich in contrasts.”
