Since the 1990’s, Manfred Pernice has developed sculptures and installations often based on functional and “modern” forms, built with low-grade materials or configured with objects and texts, drawings, photographs, often linked to historical context or of biographical nature. The familiar in Pernice’s work emerges from moments of functional leftover, ruin or remembrance. For Sculpture Garden, Manfred Pernice presents a work which resembles an aerial antenna, to which he gave the name of a German radio station. This piece is part of a series which reflects on the potential of sculptural forms for communication.
