About the exhibition

Antonius Höckelmann (b. 1937 in Oelde – d. 2000 in Cologne) worked as a resident artist at the Künstlerbahnhof Rolandseck in the early 1970s. It is therefore a great pleasure to be able to present his expressive, colourful works at the Arp Museum. In his paintings and drawings, freely created and figurative forms are woven into an impenetrable whole. The amorphous, imaginative sculptures and reliefs spread into the space and impress with their intensity. In the dynamic play of lines and colours, representations of women, sexuality, animals such as horses, fantasy creatures and wild plants take shape.

 

With this exhibition on Antonius Höckelmann the work of a sculptor and painter who had a decisive influence on the Rhenish art scene is paid tribute to. He was highly appreciated by prominent fellow artists such as Markus Lüpertz and Georg Baselitz. We owe the Höckelmann works presented in the exhibition not only to a wide variety of lenders but also to the generous donation from the Mronz Collection Cologne. In the future it will enrich the Arp Museum Bahnhof Rolandseck with an extensive collection of works by this hitherto underestimated German artist.

 

The exhibition is realised in cooperation with the Kunsthalle Bielefeld.
