Shifting the focus: artistic impressions of “Die Gläserne Manufaktur”
A remarkable drawing project is currently on display at “Die Gläserne Manufaktur”
For eight weeks, Leipzig artist Matthias Seifert explored the “Die Gläserne Manufaktur” with pencil and paper in hand. He made numerous sketches, then copied them onto a large canvas, mixing them with large-scale motifs to create a unique collage. The artwork skilfully depicts all the processes involved in the final stages of assembly.
The complete work is a fascinating collection of hundreds of fragments that is impressive in its own right. But it is particularly captivating for the employees illustrated, who have surely never seen themselves on canvas before. The finished walls are located in the visitors area in the Orangery, where they will be on display until the end of May.
On 25 May 2011, the artist will personally present his work as part of an After Work Lounge evening. The event will be followed by a Q&A session.
