Moderated by Michael Kortländer, curator of the exhibition, the artist granted a selected circle exclusive insights into his work. The exhibition "Apicale" is already the second space4art intervention and was specially designed for the publicly accessible inner courtyard of the HPP workspace in Düsseldorf's Medienhafen. HPP has been at home in Düsseldorf for over 80 years and its architecture has shaped the cityscape over the decades. We are pursuing the goal of becoming part of the city's public space and cultural life with the new working worlds in the Medienhafen.
The Sicilian artist Josef Ribaudo presents a sculptural installation that stages his examination of the movement of plants in their life cycle. Using a wide variety of materials, such as wood, bricks and clay mixed with resins, PVC and iron, "Apicale" shows the horizontal growth of plants caused by complete weightlessness. Josef Ribaudo's artistic research focuses on the natural world and the contrast between its pristine elements and the artificial world. The exhibition "Apicale" is open to visitors until October 20, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (monday through friday) as well as from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. (saturdays). Medienhafen Düsseldorf, Zollhof 26, admission is free.
