Press release

Gereon Krebber – Tepidarium

The five massive concrete steles from Gereon Krebber's latest series, Graufleisch (Grey Flesh) have hexagonal or octagonal forms. The stereometric, block-like bodies closing horizontally towards the top, are partly hollowed out - holes gape at the tops of the sculptures as if they were organically inverted. Towards the bottom, the hollow form tapers like a throat or a cave opening, and below it, an empty volume follows, which opens again like a stomach and remains visible from above. "It may seem like looking into an open throat like a dentist," says Gereon Krebber. "The pieces look as if monumental machine screws, antique column fragments and medical rectal examinations have been sculpturally combined.”
