"The time you invest in something defines your love for it ..."
 



Rainer Warzecha & Interglotz Artnetwork - Sculpture

Working with wood, mosaic and earth - it comes to SCULPTURE, ... naturally, literally! It has always been my joy to create shapes and give form to objects - already in the ninetees. The love of touch, the capacity to "use" things brings forward a general thought of the playful, handsome, native and naive. Children have a very direct attitude here - they love to not merely "look" at things - they like to climb, to make the object part of the game.

Mainly our works have been made from earth in the beginning of activities. In the years I developed abilities to construct in a variety of possible forms and materials: Wood and mosaic (on concrete). Some larger works resulted: Huge oven decorations at Berlin's Alpha II ecostation, and the big elephant sculptures in Berlin's Britzer Garden are outstanding. Many more have been done, specially in mosaic techniques.

With the years, building framework for our huts, I got deepeer into woodcarving. Totems and reliefs of different kind, carving was an additional technique - that made worthy, and lasting elements on buildings. In the clay-labyrinth and Makunaima space you may find about 30 sculptures, made from wood - from different authors.

Workshops and Opportunities ...

Our annual earth-construction-workshop Makunaima, open to anyone - lasts six weeks during summer school holidays and has continued since 1990. Here you can take part in a very "free" and without costs or obligation. The sculpting of earthen elements is part of the game. If you tend to a more intense and specified form - there are workshops - mostly on the "woodcarving" topic.... Check dates!

Interglotz Art and eARThworks - International

Over the years we got to travel! Buildings on site, community projecs and international conferences, a lot of partners - mostly on playground- or earthbuilding issues gave a call! If you need a speaker, me as an artist to lead a workshop, or us as a team on location, ... let us know - we are still ready to rock!

Sculpting with Earth - the artificial work with earth is a credo - involving children is a must! Theory? Read more Earthen elements - when structures are built, they get decoration - a magic touch. Joyful beautifying. Tiny sculptures made of clay - any child can touch the ground and build its ART.
