About:⁠
The Model is pleased to present a newly commissioned body of work by the artist Stephen Brandes. Schmerzbau: It’s not all just misery explores how both comedy and tragedy can sit side-by-side through juxtapositions of representation and abstract form.⁠
⁠
Schmerzbau itself is a made-up word, joining together two German words; schmerz, meaning pain or grief and bau, meaning construction. It is also a play on another constructed word, Merzbau, which was coined by the German artist Kurt Schwitters to give a title to the installations and collage work he created between 1920 and his death in 1948. In his lifetime he started several different Merzbauten in different locations. Each, however, was doomed to suffer tragic misfortune.⁠
⁠
Central to this exhibition is a complex walk-through architectural and sculptural assemblage, which is partly an homage to Schwitters, his humour and resilience throughout the darkness of the first half of the last century. It pays tribute to the idea of creating something compelling, and often humorous, out of the mess our culture leaves in its wake.⁠
⁠
The exhibition continues until 25 September and is accompanied by a publication by Brandes and art historian Sarah Kelleher, which is available from The Model’s reception desk.⁠
