Structangle I

Galvanized Steel Strips

Artist: Angelika Summa

“Structangle I” is a term by the Korean philosopher Byung-Chul Han meaning a “structured tangle”. Reference to the term can be seen in the sculpture “Structangle II” by the artist Angelika Summa which consists of a steel strip, bent and welded together to form a wound ball, and shows neither the beginning nor the end of the winding.

In the remaining spaces, twisted steel bands were welded, which elevates the sculpture, giving the impression of a floating sun with protuberances. The sculpture in the public space was galvanized to add depth and for corrosion protection.
