Rainer Kriester | Großer verletzter Kopf

A major part of Rainer Kriester’s (b. 1935 in Plauen) oeuvre is occupied with abstracted heads that he likewise designated as »head signs«. The placing of the sculpture »Großer verletzter Kopf« occurred without any direct references to the city hall or museum; it represents nothing, creating instead a tranquil site of personal encounter. Its title causes us to search for breaks, deviations, irregularities and finally associatively for states, situations or explanations. Indications might be provided by the (protective) gesture of the over-dimensioned hands. » Location: Trammplatz (in front of the Museum August Kestner)
