From idea to transfer
GROUNDED – Carbon nonwovens in a different way
The first contact between the STFI, Tenowo GmbH Hof and the Austrian artist Daniel Hölzl took place several years ago. What began with a small donation of materials now culminates in his first exhibition.
"Daniel Hölzl creates in GROUNDED a special link between the two worlds of art and technology by consistently implementing the idea of sustainability. With great attention to detail, he takes visitors up into the air before grounding them again with the harsh reality of recycling." This is the opinion of Marcel Hofmann, Head of Textile Lightweight Engineering at STFI, after visiting the Dittrich and Schlechtriem Gallery in Berlin.
Apart from wax, carbon nonwovens are the main components the exhibited works are made of. The recycled materials form the basis of the raw material being reused demonstrating how circular economy can function.
For interested ones who would like to visit the exhibition: GROUNDED runs from 8 July to 3 September 2022 at the Berlin art gallery Diettrich & Schlechtriem.
