After Nature

Museum Sinclair-Haus, Bad Homburg

– 10 September 2017



The Sinclair-Haus Museum in Bad Homburg is currently holding the exhibition “After Nature”, developed in collaboration with HfG Offenbach. Until 10 September 2017, the exhibition showcases contemporary work by artists and designers who use materials from nature or are inspired by nature.


The exhibition is integrated into the overall programme of the museum, which has a thematic focus on the tension between nature, creatures, and creation.
The exhibits are predominantly sculptures and objects made of wood, grass, flower seeds or peat. The concept of nature is explored in a range of ways, raising the question of where the boundary between nature and art lies and how far it can be shifted. Exhibits include work by Julius von Bismarck, Angela M. Flaig, Daniel Bräg, Angela Kiersch and Rikuo Ueda. Work by  students of the Institut für Materialdesign at HfG Offenbach explores the interaction of design with nature, revealing a different relationship to natural materials. Parametric Skin by Johannes Wöhrlin examines how the use of digitally controlled machining processes makes it possible to integrate leather into new moulding processes. The ceramic project Ceramic Woods transforms wood into a ceramic material using a ceramizing process. The wood is first heated to more than 1,000 degrees celsius, charred and then subjected to a silicon infiltration process. This results in modern fossils, which stand out for their unique aesthetics and also have very unusual material properties.
An extensive programme of events complements the exhibition. In addition to guided tours and discussions, the Kulturmeilenfest will be held on 19 August 2017.
