For My Love

October 12 – 13, 2019

Court Space’s inaugural exhibition For My Love is a new body of sculptures from Marco Kane Braunschweiler. These works use concrete, steel, wood, rubber, wax and guava leaves, to depict shared experiences of love.

The materials are autobiographical and allegorical. A frond from a palm tree becomes braided hair. Four pieces of timber strapped together become a tense family dinner between people that hate each other. A rock with a bolt through it becomes two lovers holding each other indefinitely. 

The sculptures are improvisational. They trace personal bonds, detailing the questions, joy and pain that arise when people relate.
