sebastian hempel

"Though his work substantially deals with the phenomena of light, space and time, velocity and sound, perception and motility, it is in the manipulative investigations born of an »experimental play« with these issues that the essence of Hempel’s work resides. Therefore the nature of curiosity, problems to be solved, puzzlement and subsequent dicovery, are integrated into his sculptural and spatial undertakings from the very beginning.

But to mention play inevitably alludes to pleasure and fun, to the artist’s optical games as well as the spatial actions he provokes. His developing of human sensory experiences of either of an optical or aural nature, mediated though a motile and spatial impulse, is an omnipresent feature found within all his sculptural works and installations." - Mark Gisbourne, Galerie baer
