Schang Hutter | Veitstanz

The multipart installation by Jean Albert (Schang) Hutter (b. 1934 in Solothurn, Switzerland) goes back to a competition tendered by the State of Lower Saxony concerning an artistic design for the square behind the regional court building. Its total spatial concept can still be seen as unconventional in Hannover today: it undertakes the attempt to lend a more self-contained quality to this dismembered site, integrating urban space by means of connected decentralised elements. The character of a public square it intended to achieve is benefitted by recent rebuilding carried out on the site; at the time of its installation, an entrance to the underpass leading to the train station that remained an impasse for many years was situated in the middle of the piece. The artist visualised the existing complex spatial layers and counteracted them with an almost naive figurativeness and playful dynamism. The work is the property of the State of Lower Saxony. » Location: Volgersweg (on the square in front of the district court building)
