The world-renowned conceptual artist Franz Erhahd Walther (Fulda, Germany, 1939) is still active in exhibitions with his particular artistic vision. This is his first anthology in Spain and premiered in the Palace of Velázquez (El Retiro, Madrid) with a sample that includes sculpture, painting, drawing and graphic documentation that relate his two main themes, language and action. For him, art has an immaterial meaning therefore its nature is performative.

The action is complemented by the materials used to give meaning to the object and thus reach the public through the body. Together with time and space, these elements are modeled and their discourse giving way to artistic practices such as sculpture and installation. Erharhd, begins its activity in the 50's and questions the condition of the artistic object before the history of art.

For the artist materials are a vital starting point for developing their actions and in this case the fabrics symbolize art and life. The textures, color and seams themselves make us as spectators immersed in a paradise full of possibilities given that they do not lead us to the idea of ??a finished object. The activities will run until 10 September in collaboration with the Goethe Institut.
