Aycock’s artistic beginnings were initially strongly influenced by American Colour Field painting, Concept Art, Minimal Art, and Land Art. She devotes herself to architectural structures and designs non-usable pseudo-architectures. The 1980s were marked by machine-like metal sculptures that imported aspects of applied engineering or engineering science to her conception of sculpture. Over the last 10 years Aycock has been developing her large Twister sculptures. Themes such as climate change and the loss of balance in our dealings with nature, but also industrial civilisation and engineering as possible responses are addressed in these remarkable sculptures.
Aycock’s work was shown in Germany at documenta 6 in 1977, documenta 8 in 1987 and in a solo exhibition at the Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart, the Kölner Kunstverein and the Glaskastenmuseum Marl in 1983. The Sprengel Museum Hannover is now presenting the artist’s first solo museum exhibition in Germany in 35 years.
Opening: Friday, 7.6.19, 7 p.m.
