About

Helotroph Foum Squitt is primarily white due to the lasa marble and dark brown due to the stone that rests on top.

This piece is part of Venske & Spänle's newest series included in their fifth solo-exhibition title "minimal invasiv" at Margaret Thatcher Projects. Taking visual and conceptual inspiration from the realms of sci-fi, cartoon animation and an innate sense of playful humor, this Munich-based duo is deeply interested in the interaction between sculpture, place, and viewer.

Regarding these biomorphic sculptures as alien-like entities taken from their original place of creation to travel the world through a myriad of different exhibitions, the sculptures have now landed in New York to “invade” the scene like otherworldly creatures, spreading their species under the radar. The artists further push this notion by documenting their sculptures interacting in site-specific locations.

Venske & Spänle is the moniker for the artists Julia Venske (b.1971, Berlin) and Gregor Spänle (b. 1969, Munich). The artists live and work in Munich, and have exhibited their work worldwide in North and South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa. Recent solo museum exhibitions include the Museum de Bella Artes, Valencia, ES (2014) and Museum Bad Arolsen, Kassel, DE (2012). Permanent public installations of their work include Myzot Nachtwächter in Incheon, South Korea and Autoeater in Querceta, Italy. Autoeater is currently on display in Atlanta, GA for a three-year term for Atlanta’s Midtown Alliance Public Art Program.
