An exploration of the shaft as an element of sculpture

Jan Köchermann (*1967 in Lüdenscheid) has been dealing with the shaft as a sculptural element since 1996, in recent years producing a variety of large installations in public space. He stages rifts in reality and plays with the ways viewers conventionally experience them, leading to new, unexpected spaces or spatial situations: whether it be the third-floor gallery on Admiralitätstrasse flooded with water and with a floating high-rise building, or the reproduction of a twenty-six-meter-long bicycle tunnel, at the end of which is a sign that suggests to the viewer that he is actually on the Aussenalster in Hamburg and not in the art capital of Düsseldorf.

This monograph embraces Köchermann’s entire oeuvre. Besides the large installations, it also examines his light sculptures, model-like interiors with film projections, and his puzzling spatial productions.
