Kubach and Kropp - works in Riehen

Stone – Light – Sound

About the stone sculptures by Kubach & Kropp

Stone is formed deep within the earth, from

compressed sand or solidified lava. It is created

through a combination of temperature,

pressure and a lot of time. Volcanic eruptions,

natural erosion or earthquakes bring it to the

surface. Glaciers and flowing water carry it

over long distances and give it characteristic

shapes. Stone is the matter of our world, more

ancient than all life and it embodies the history

of the planet.

The origin and formation of stone through

archaic primal forces can often still be seen

in the sculptures of the artist couple Kubach

& Kropp. The original surfaces of the stones,

such as reddish-yellow crusts and natural sintering,

contrast with processed, highly polished

surfaces that allow a glimpse into the crystalline

depths of the stone.

Stone is often associated with strength, durability

and stability and it is considered a solid

and long-lasting material that can endure for

centuries, even millennia. Thus, the towering

monumental sculptures of the artist duo seem

capable to outlast all future ages. However,

this presumed stability is thoroughly shaken,

for example, by the Islands of Pillars. With a

push, the massive stone moves back and forth,

swaying in a sedate rhythm, producing surprisingly

clear and crystalline sounds through

the columns, the drilled cores that sway and

generate friction in their holes, each creating

its own unique tones.

Columns – we associate them with architecture

and antiquity. Temples, historical buildings,

and stone monuments are cultural heritage.

Stone has a long tradition not only in architecture

but also in sculpture. Michelangelo

is reported to have said that the sculpture

already exists within the stone and only needs

to be freed from it. This liberation occurs in

the works of Kubach & Kropp with technical

finesse,

using diamond-studded tools that

allow for a gentle way of working and high

degree of precision in the process. The works

of this artist couple are both sculptures in the

classical sense, created by subtracting material,

as well as through the additive process of

assembling the extracted core drills into new

works. We see this in the Stone Drops, Stones

for the Wind and Cocoons.

Stone usually feels cold and hard, which can be

used as a metaphor for emotions or personality

traits in certain contexts. The titles of the

works by the artist couple contradict these

associations, as can be seen with the aforementioned

Cocoons. But not only their naming

set us right, but also the observation of the

stones themselves: their rounded, organic

shape, the narrow openings on the surface

which offer a glimpse of light falling into the

depths as well as making the rough edges of

the granite core drills glimmer. It is like the

view into a cave, into a cocoon.


Similar familiar thoughts come to mind

when looking at some Stones for the Encounter:

here we often see two elements nestling

against each other and either seems tightly

intertwined, connected by a band or by

sharing a common heart. Despite their extremely

reduced form and their high degree

of abstraction, we establish a connection to

human togetherness, think of an embrace

or of moving closer. The sculptures radiate

calm, warmth and security.

Due to its density and mass, stone is often

associated with heaviness and weight.

While these properties play a part in some

works, in many works by Kubach & Kropp

we are confronted with exactly the opposite.

The Stones for the Light share their grid-like

structure of countless holes drilled through

the stone, which dissolve the weight and

compactness of the hard material. Changing

positions of the viewer and the shifting

daylight constantly alter the artwork. The

seemingly randomly distributed core drillings

across the surface must be carefully

placed to not endanger the stability of the

structure.

In the case of the Stones for Silence, there is also

a dissolution of volume. Adjacently placed fine

lamellae form the structures of these works. In

addition, this series of works introduces another

unexpected aspect, already hinted at for

the Islands of Pillars: the dimension of sound.

When passing one’s hand over the lamellae,

extraordinary earthy tones emerge. The black

Swedish granite, with its particularly dense and

hard texture, inspired the artists to create these

resounding sculptures.

The sculptures by Kubach & Kropp are created

to outlast eternity, yet they are equally there for

us, for the moment. There is a connection to

primeval structures as stone matter always remains

visible and conscious, while, at the same

time, the artists create something completely

new/innovative and unexpected. Mobility, transparency,

sound versus weight, naturalness, permanence:

The sculptures by Livia Kubach and

Michael Kropp fulfill both atypical and common

connotations for stone sculptures. They unite

nature and art in harmony.

The sculptures by Livia Kubach and Michael Kropp point - past the impenetrable mass and immovable weight of the stone and through it - to the permeable, sensitive, light and momentary sides of the stone. In them, the seemingly unbreakable interpenetrates and interacts with the incessantly endangered, the seemingly eternal with the - often barely perceptible - fleeting. You can see that in them.



And you can hear it in them.



Often most haunting and inescapable in the works whose design does not follow a planned conception of sound: they sound very unique, thin-skinned and bony or with the quality of breathing, corporeal.



They seem - shaken and set in vibration - to touch us directly inwardly and just as physically, to make a hidden kinship with them vibrate in us, to shake us.



Others unfold extraordinary melodic possibilities that go beyond our tempered and sworn listening.



All of them elicit from me, more than I would have to elicit the sounds from them, attention to the simple, an alertness for the present moment, awakening my perception of the simultaneous and equal value of the unbreakable-eternal and the filigree-volatile, in the stones, in the moment and in us.



As dense and massive or fragile and succinct as their sound may be, they bring me without hesitation into a state in which I do not think, but feel that music is born out of silence and leads back into it.

Stone - Light - Sound



About the stone sculptures by Kubach & Kropp

Stone is formed deep inside the earth, from

compacted sand or solidified lava.



It is formed through the interplay of temperature,

pressure and a lot of time. Volcanic eruptions,

natural erosion or earthquakes bring it

it to the light. Glaciers and flowing water

carry it over long distances and give it

it characteristic shapes.



Stone is the matter of our world, older than all life and

the history of the planet.

The origin and formation of stone through

archaic elemental forces can be seen in the sculptures

the sculptures of the artist couple Kubach & Kropp

still visible. The original surfaces of the

reddish-yellow crusts and natural sintering, for example, contrast with the

sintering contrast with

with processed, highly polished surfaces,

which allow a view into the crystalline depth of the stone.

depths of the stone.



Stone is often associated with strength, durability and stability

strength, durability and stability and is considered a

and durable material that can last for centuries

even millennia. This is why

the metre-high monumental sculptures of the

of the artist couple seem to be able to

outlast the ages to come. This presumed

rub against each other and produce their very own tones.





The sculptures by Livia Kubach and Michael Kropp point - past the impenetrable mass and immovable weight of the stone and through it - to the permeable, sensitive, light and momentary sides of the stone. In them, the seemingly unbreakable interpenetrates and interacts with the incessantly endangered, the seemingly eternal with the - often barely perceptible - fleeting. You can see that in them.



And you can hear it in them.



Often most haunting and inescapable in the works whose design does not follow a planned conception of sound: they sound very unique, thin-skinned and bony or with the quality of breathing, corporeal.



They seem - shaken and set in vibration - to touch us directly inwardly and just as physically, to make a hidden kinship with them vibrate in us, to shake us.



Others unfold extraordinary melodic possibilities that go beyond our tempered and sworn listening.



All of them elicit from me, more than I would have to elicit the sounds from them, attention to the simple, an alertness for the present moment, awakening my perception of the simultaneous and equal value of the unbreakable-eternal and the filigree-volatile, in the stones, in the moment and in us.



As dense and massive or fragile and succinct as their sound may be, they bring me without hesitation into a state in which I do not think, but feel that music is born out of silence and leads back into it.

Description
Stone - Light - Sound



About the stone sculptures by Kubach & Kropp

Stone is formed deep inside the earth, from

compacted sand or solidified lava.



It is formed through the interplay of temperature,

pressure and a lot of time. Volcanic eruptions,

natural erosion or earthquakes bring it

it to the light. Glaciers and flowing water

carry it over long distances and give it

it characteristic shapes.



Stone is the matter of our world, older than all life and

the history of the planet.

The origin and formation of stone through

archaic elemental forces can be seen in the sculptures

the sculptures of the artist couple Kubach & Kropp

still visible. The original surfaces of the

reddish-yellow crusts and natural sintering, for example, contrast with the

sintering contrast with

with processed, highly polished surfaces,

which allow a view into the crystalline depth of the stone.

depths of the stone.



Stone is often associated with strength, durability and stability

strength, durability and stability and is considered a

and durable material that can last for centuries

even millennia. This is why

the metre-high monumental sculptures of the

of the artist couple seem to be able to

outlast the ages to come. This presumed

stability, however, is thoroughly

the islands of pillars, for example, are shaking. Due to

a push, the massive stone moves back and forth

back and forth, undulating in a ponderous rhythm

and sounds amazingly clear and crystalline

through the pillars, the triggered drill cores

rub against each other and produce their very own tones.





The sculptures by Livia Kubach and Michael Kropp point - past the impenetrable mass and immovable weight of the stone and through it - to the permeable, sensitive, light and momentary sides of the stone. In them, the seemingly unbreakable interpenetrates and interacts with the incessantly endangered, the seemingly eternal with the - often barely perceptible - fleeting. You can see that in them.



And you can hear it in them.



Often most haunting and inescapable in the works whose design does not follow a planned conception of sound: they sound very unique, thin-skinned and bony or with the quality of breathing, corporeal.



They seem - shaken and set in vibration - to touch us directly inwardly and just as physically, to make a hidden kinship with them vibrate in us, to shake us.



Others unfold extraordinary melodic possibilities that go beyond our tempered and sworn listening.



All of them elicit from me, more than I would have to elicit the sounds from them, attention to the simple, an alertness for the present moment, awakening my perception of the simultaneous and equal value of the unbreakable-eternal and the filigree-volatile, in the stones, in the moment and in us.



As dense and massive or fragile and succinct as their sound may be, they bring me without hesitation into a state in which I do not think, but feel that music is born out of silence and leads back into it.

In them, the seemingly unbreakable interpenetrates and interacts with the incessantly endangered, the seemingly eternal with the - often barely perceptible - fleeting. You can see that in them.



And you can hear it in them.



Often most haunting and inescapable in the works whose design does not follow a planned conception of sound: they sound very unique, thin-skinned and bony or with the quality of breathing, corporeal.



They seem - shaken and set in vibration - to touch us directly inwardly and just as physically, to make a hidden kinship with them vibrate in us, to shake us.



Others unfold extraordinary melodic possibilities that go beyond our tempered and sworn listening.



All of them elicit from me, more than I would have to elicit the sounds from them, attention to the simple, an alertness for the present moment, awakening my perception of the simultaneous and equal value of the unbreakable-eternal and the filigree-volatile, in the stones, in the moment and in us.



As dense and massive or fragile and succinct as their sound may be, they bring me without hesitation into a state in which I do not think, but feel that music is born out of silence and leads back into it.

Stone - Light - Sound



About the stone sculptures by Kubach & Kropp

Stone is formed deep inside the earth, from

compacted sand or solidified lava.



It is formed through the interplay of temperature,

pressure and a lot of time. Volcanic eruptions,

natural erosion or earthquakes bring it

it to the light. Glaciers and flowing water

carry it over long distances and give it

it characteristic shapes.



Stone is the matter of our world, older than all life and

the history of the planet.

The origin and formation of stone through

archaic elemental forces can be seen in the sculptures

the sculptures of the artist couple Kubach & Kropp

still visible. The original surfaces of the

reddish-yellow crusts and natural sintering, for example, contrast with the

sintering contrast with

with processed, highly polished surfaces,

which allow a view into the crystalline depth of the stone.

Stone is often associated with strength, durability and stability

strength, durability and stability and is considered a

and durable material that can last for centuries

even millennia. This is why

the metre-high monumental sculptures of the

of the artist couple seem to be able to

outlast the ages to come. This presumed

stability, however, is thoroughly

Stone - Light - Sound



About the stone sculptures by Kubach & Kropp

Stone is formed deep inside the earth, from

compacted sand or solidified lava.



It is formed through the interplay of temperature,

pressure and a lot of time. Volcanic eruptions,

natural erosion or earthquakes bring it

it to the light. Glaciers and flowing water

carry it over long distances and give it

it characteristic shapes.



Stone is the matter of our world, older than all life and

the history of the planet.

The origin and formation of stone through

archaic elemental forces can be seen in the sculptures

the sculptures of the artist couple Kubach & Kropp

still visible. The original surfaces of the

reddish-yellow crusts and natural sintering, for example, contrast with the

sintering contrast with

with processed, highly polished surfaces,

which allow a view into the crystalline depth of the stone.

depths of the stone.



Stone is often associated with strength, durability and stability

strength, durability and stability and is considered a

and durable material that can last for centuries

even millennia. This is why

the metre-high monumental sculptures of the

of the artist couple seem to be able to

outlast the ages to come. This presumed

stability, however, is thoroughly

the islands of pillars, for example, are shaking. Due to

a push, the massive stone moves back and forth

back and forth, undulating in a ponderous rhythm

and sounds amazingly clear and crystalline

through the pillars, the triggered drill cores

which rock along in their holes, rub against each other

rub against each other and produce their very own tones.





The sculptures by Livia Kubach and Michael Kropp point - past the impenetrable mass and immovable weight of the stone and through it - to the permeable, sensitive, light and momentary sides of the stone. In them, the seemingly unbreakable interpenetrates and interacts with the incessantly endangered, the seemingly eternal with the - often barely perceptible - fleeting. You can see that in them.



And you can hear it in them.



Often most haunting and inescapable in the works whose design does not follow a planned conception of sound: they sound very unique, thin-skinned and bony or with the quality of breathing, corporeal.



They seem - shaken and set in vibration - to touch us directly inwardly and just as physically, to make a hidden kinship with them vibrate in us, to shake us.



Others unfold extraordinary melodic possibilities that go beyond our tempered and sworn listening.



All of them elicit from me, more than I would have to elicit the sounds from them, attention to the simple, an alertness for the present moment, awakening my perception of the simultaneous and equal value of the unbreakable-eternal and the filigree-volatile, in the stones, in the moment and in us.



As dense and massive or fragile and succinct as their sound may be, they bring me without hesitation into a state in which I do not think, but feel that music is born out of silence and leads back into it.

Description
Stone - Light - Sound



About the stone sculptures by Kubach & Kropp

Stone is formed deep inside the earth, from

compacted sand or solidified lava.



It is formed through the interplay of temperature,

pressure and a lot of time. Volcanic eruptions,

natural erosion or earthquakes bring it

it to the light. Glaciers and flowing water

carry it over long distances and give it

it characteristic shapes.



Stone is the matter of our world, older than all life and

the history of the planet.

The origin and formation of stone through

archaic elemental forces can be seen in the sculptures

the sculptures of the artist couple Kubach & Kropp

still visible. The original surfaces of the

reddish-yellow crusts and natural sintering, for example, contrast with the

sintering contrast with

with processed, highly polished surfaces,

which allow a view into the crystalline depth of the stone.

depths of the stone.



Stone is often associated with strength, durability and stability

strength, durability and stability and is considered a

and durable material that can last for centuries

even millennia. This is why

the metre-high monumental sculptures of the

of the artist couple seem to be able to

outlast the ages to come. This presumed

stability, however, is thoroughly

the islands of pillars, for example, are shaking. Due to

a push, the massive stone moves back and forth

back and forth, undulating in a ponderous rhythm

and sounds amazingly clear and crystalline

through the pillars, the triggered drill cores

which rock along in their holes, rub against each other

rub against each other and produce their very own tones.





The sculptures by Livia Kubach and Michael Kropp point - past the impenetrable mass and immovable weight of the stone and through it - to the permeable, sensitive, light and momentary sides of the stone. In them, the seemingly unbreakable interpenetrates and interacts with the incessantly endangered, the seemingly eternal with the - often barely perceptible - fleeting. You can see that in them.



And you can hear it in them.



Often most haunting and inescapable in the works whose design does not follow a planned conception of sound: they sound very unique, thin-skinned and bony or with the quality of breathing, corporeal.



They seem - shaken and set in vibration - to touch us directly inwardly and just as physically, to make a hidden kinship with them vibrate in us, to shake us.



Others unfold extraordinary melodic possibilities that go beyond our tempered and sworn listening.



All of them elicit from me, more than I would have to elicit the sounds from them, attention to the simple, an alertness for the present moment, awakening my perception of the simultaneous and equal value of the unbreakable-eternal and the filigree-volatile, in the stones, in the moment and in us.



As dense and massive or fragile and succinct as their sound may be, they bring me without hesitation into a state in which I do not think, but feel that music is born out of silence and leads back into it.
