Toni Stadler | Ägäis

The sculpture by Toni Stadler (b. 1888 in Munich – d. 1982) was acquired by the city of Hannover after an exhibition at the Kunstverein and later installed at the Maschteich. It combines the organic aspect of the pond with the park’s manmade environment. The steps leading down to the water make up a kind of tribune with the object becoming a part of a theatrical production. A stage for the view from the water comes about with the city hall forming a monumental backdrop. Stadler’s piece is simultaneously a foreign body and a sounding box with the surrounding water serving as a base, mirror, pulse generator and spacer. » Location: Maschteich (at the steps behind the New City Hall)
