Wilhelm Mundt at Blickachsen 13 in the historic Bad Homburg Kurpark and Schlosspark

Wilhelm Mundt is taking part in this year's Blickachsen sculpture project in the Kurpark and Schlosspark Bad Homburg.


Wilhelm Mundt is represented in Blickachsen 13 by two pieces from his noted work series, "Trashstones”. As the title suggests, these consist in essence of remnants that have accumulated in the artist's studio. The starting point is the idea of converting the production leftovers into amorphous creations, to ‘pack’ them, and in this way dispose of them while at the same time creating something new. They are tightly bound to a form-giving core and covered in a plastic coating. The carefully worked, in part intensively sanded and polished surfaces of the works, play a large part in this: with its colour and shape, “Trashstone 745" blends in with its natural surroundings in the Kurpark, while the added aluminium skin of “Trashstone 689" mirrors its varied surroundings. Furthermore, in Blickachsen 13, Mundt makes playful reference to their location in the Bad Homburg Kurpark — site of the oldest golf course in Germany — by placing his sculptures in sand bunkers.


Every two years from May to October, "Blickachsen" shows contemporary large-scale sculptures and installations by international artists in the historic parks in the centre of Bad Homburg vor der Höhe as well as in Frankfurt/Main and other locations in the Rhine-Main region. The title of this unique exhibition series is derived from the "axes of vision" laid out by Peter Joseph Lenné in the garden architecture of Bad Homburg's spa gardens in the mid-19th century.
