Stephan Soihl’s wall mounted sculptures, which he imagines as performances, are elegant and precise, recalling Russian Suprematism or Bauhaus aesthetics. But there also seems to be a playfulness here. This sculpture moves slowly, almost imperceptibly, driven by a motor hidden on the other side of the wall. It continues its glacial movement until it reaches a tipping point and an arm swoops downward only to begin its upward climb once more. The performances on offer here are slow and subtle so you need to be willing to give them your time. But if you do you will be rewarded.
