Stefan Vogel (*1981 in Fürth, lives and in Leipzig) has created a varied oeuvre consisting of drawings, paintings, sculptural elements, and installation interventions in the past years that constantly vacillate between grand gesture and a meticulous love of details.
Vogel works with entirely unpretentious materials, and this is also true of his edition titled Schauer. A shower curtain with mold stains is hung on the wall in a semicircle in front of an angle made of paraffin. With the selected materials, Vogel typically refers to the alterability in his art that occasionally functions like a small ecosystem. Depending on the ambient temperature, the paraffin slightly changes its consistency, and the mold stains also indicate a biological impact on the plastic curtain. Furthermore, the installation is not purchased fully installed, but must be set up according to the instructions of the artist. This not only leads to minor deviations caused by the individual installation, but also turns the consumer into a producer of art.
