The work series "Hommage to Christo and Jeanne-Claude," Koethe interpreted the event if Wrapped Reichstag. The folds of the silvery cloth, the ropes, and play of shadows have gotten a reflection in this plastic work from stainless steel. The steles bound with a steel band and the cloth pieces tied together remind of the heads that have bent to each other.

In the sculptural works of Jan Koethe's (born in 1965), the rigid massiveness of stainless steel contrasts with the organic shape of his sculptures, which radiate their very own dynamic aesthetics. Koethe became known through numerous exhibitions, acquisitions, art and promotion prizes thanks to his special artistic expression. In 2002 he participated as a guest artist at documenta 11 in Kassel. He studied at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Dortmund in the sculpture class of Prof. Horst Linn. Jan Koethe lives in Berlin.

Designation for an art object (sculpture, installation), which is produced according to the will of the artist in multiple copies in a limited and numbered edition.

Artist's multiple contributed to "democratization" of art as the work was made available and affordable for a wider audience.

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.
