    Henk Visch was born in 1950 in Eindhoven, Netherlands. He lives and works in Berlin. “The sculpture of a world at war: The figure falls, gets back up and finds himself in the midst of a certain kind of obscure void. The details are not very pronounced; the feet, the earth, the body, and the face turn upwards. The lack of details makes the distance implicit: the little face up there, like a Japanese kite, gives him the air of a solitary dreamer – despite his energetic entourage – lurking and grave. The present is his natural habitat, the colour of the morning envelopes him like the dawn. A survival instinct guides his behaviour, or rather, his thoughts, an awareness that the drama of existence in which he plays an important role, as a human among his equals, might crush him at any moment. Does he fight to save himself? Not necessarily, he exists and the world is at war.” Henk Visch
