E. R. Nele. Zeitzeugenschaft – Museum Angewandte Kunst
“He who is only in motion loses his orientation, he who always sees the whole loses the part, he who always searches loses himself on the horizon, and he who always finds abandons himself to chance”, said Jean-Christopher Ammann (1939-2015) at the inauguration speech of the sculpture Walking Man by E. R. Nele in 2001. The great art connoisseur, exhibition organiser and museum director said this in view of the frozen movement of the high-wire artist carrying a pole on a steel cable.
