The sculpture surrenders to the viewers embrace allowing them to sink slightly into the form.  All at once the sculpture collapses and supports like an inviting yet unsettling pillow.


Up to now art history can only scarcely read the influence of touched artistic work. Traditionally the visitors of an exhibition are obliged to restrain themselves respectfully from the artworks in order to recognize themselves, in a diligent visually refined way, as a plain observer of the art. On one hand as spectator one may be touched by the impression of a picture, on the other hand the artwork must be conserved and shielded from any possible touch. The spaces administering this state are bourgeois. Art you can touch is being declared a museum-pedagogical work for those who are still to be taught the right way of seeing.

The Heavy Petting Gallery instead is a place where the direct physical contact with the artistic work not only takes place but shall be actively encouraged.

Thereby the Heavy Petting Gallery is acting neither didactic nor charitable. It does not declare the negligence of visibility a distress that shall be relieved but, as a project space, campaigns for new forms of artistic work and their emancipation.
