Born in Freising in 1965, Korbinian Huber completed training in stone carving before studying Sculpting at the Academy of Visual Arts in Nürnberg from 1990 to 1996. In 1993 he won Freising County’s Art Advancement Award. He is involved in various art symposiums both in Germany and abroad. Korbinian Huber lives and works as an independent artist in Duggendorf.
Korbinian Hubers wooden sculptures are created four-dimensionally. Through his work, the sculptor breaks from the idea of wooden stiffness and creates his own imagination-powered, poetic world. With a smile and irony from a distance, Huber is able to capture the fullness of life through his work. His unconventional, sometimes delicate, sometimes crude, sculptures give testimony to a passionate, very innovative and ever-professional connection to wood.
For Wunsiedel, Huber created an installation which offers a “good, deep look” into the Wunsiedel Ice Pond. The surface of standing water or of the sea is a geometric plane, a fundamental concept of two-dimensionality. Questioning this otherwise unquestioning surface, the standard for all constructive intentions, is a game Korbinian Huber cannot resist playing.
Michael Mordo, born in Stuttgart in 1961, is both a graphic and visual artist and musician. He began his artistic studies studying Puppet Building with the puppetry artist Albrecht Roser. From 1982 to 1988 he studied Sculpturing at the State Academy for Visual and Graphic Arts in Stuttgart, while continuing to teach himself jazz, which he started learning when he was still very young.
He teaches Puppet Construction and Artistic Design as Lecturer on the subject of Puppet Theater at the College of Music and Performing Arts in Stuttgart. He has been exhibiting his works (paintings, scuptures, puppets) since 1985.
Since 2014, Michael Mordo has been working with Ruth Küblers “droplet picture” technique. This method makes internal structures of water droplets visible. Over many years, the artist has modified this method to fit his needs, and, to this end, has even constructed special microscopes and other equipment.
Every nuance contained within water comes to light through Mordo’s enormous talent for reacting sensitively in different ways. Water in a “droplet picture” is no longer recognizable as such, but rather as the dry residue created at the moment of droplet formation and during the dynamics of evaporation.
The focus is on the capturing the asthetic value of the pictures, their visual and picturesque richness. For the Wunsiedel Water Games, the artist aims to make structures within Wunsiedel’s own native waters visible with this tecnnique.
