Inge Mahn

“Several sculptures by Inge Mahn are positioned in a space, receiving their form from it. Others assert themselves like architecture, self-confidently and discreetly, in a surrounding space that is not made precise. The irregular white surfaces reveal the traces of numerous fabrication processes and absorb the light that should be intensified by their large surface area and pale colour. This circumstance explains the sculptures' peculiar presence. Despite their formal relation to Minimal art, they do not demand attention, unfolding instead a particular poetry from this modest, though very decisive stance. Their uniform whiteness and their irregular surfaces, which break the ambient light, evoke an impression in the viewer of standing before clear bodies, which, like phantoms do not occupy the space they define, but keep it open.”
