Oliver Carlos Tüchsen
In the Evangelische Stadtkirche, Oliver Tüchsen exhibits six light objects which, in the course of their creation, have been subject to constant transformation. He describes his objects as Dadaist prototypes: on the one hand they are architectural models – hollow bodies consisting of stuff he finds, caps, epoxy resin, wooden parts, bicycle wheels and even high heels. On the other hand, they are sculptures that address the theme of recycling and upcycling.
Sometimes in his works, he sees hollowed-out meteorites, on a scale of 1:200, which could offer a new home to future mankind, were the earth no longer habitable, which of course he hopes will not happen. Visitors are invited to discover this world.
Oliver Tüchsen is a draftsman, object maker and painter. He describes his art as interdisciplinary work. When constructing objects, Tüchsen’s reference is his drawings and his own texts. When painting, he is an architect, thirsty and hungry to embark on a journey full of uncertainty, thereby creating spaces that are – in the next moment – deconstructed and destroyed, in order to start again and throw light into the darkness.
