Uli Schwander – 1958, Bad Säckingen, Germany
Working as an independent artist since 1989, I have shown my work in individual exhibitions in Germany and Spain, and at many collective shows of international character. My monumental stone, wood and bronze sculptures are installed at public spaces in Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, India, Dubai, Burkina Faso, Cuba, Turkey, Albania, Montenegro, Czech Republic, Austria, Italy, Portugal, Spain, France, Belgium, Netherlands, and Germany. I have participated at many international sculpture symposia and since 2001 I have directed three international sculpture events by myself. My main interest is to favour and to contribute to contemporary, site specific sculpture in both urban and natural contexts. Besides my projects in stone, I´ve proposed projects for traffic roundels in corten steel and done ‚art in nature‘ projects. My sculpture seems to facilitate an immediate approach, which works as a vehicle to advance towards deeper layers, towards a more complete view of complexity.
