Bronze sculpture details
With his sculpture “Mensch mit Mensch” (Person with Person), the artist has created a dialogue situation that is as archetypal as it is humorous, in which the elements of the oldest of all – the archaic – are blended with the most modern of all – the comic strip – in a tongue-in-cheek manner.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
Häfner's works are based upon scientific knowledge, were each discursive explanation of the world reaches its limit. His works start from scratch so to speak, and formulate new archetypes that are still referenced from prehistoric times, but at the same time - as an archetype, not as a stereotype - they act very modern.
