Long Description:

Am Fuße des Frankfurter Doms steht die Skulptur A model for a monument for Mr. & Ms. Heinrich Deichmann. Sie gehört zur Werkreihe "Everything For You (EFY)", die der Belgische Künstler Jan De Cock (*1976) seit einigen Jahren ausführt. Hierzu fertigt er geometrisch-abstrakte Module aus Baumaterialien. Die Objekte werden in eine Stadt transportiert – sei es Herford, Hong Kong, Mexico City, Carrara, Kiew oder New York – und dort arrangiert. Oft werden vor Ort gefundene Materialien oder Farben einbezogen. Die Skulptur aus Sichtbeton, blauem Muschelkalk und Baukeramik verweist mit ihrer rohen Ästhetik, Materialität und in ihrer Farbigkeit auf Frankfurts jüngere und ältere Vergangenheit: auf die Trümmer der kriegsversehrten Altstadt oder die Architektur des Brutalismus im abgerissenen Historischen Museum und technischen Rathaus.

At the base of Frankfurt Cathedral stands the sculpture A model for a monument for Mr. & Ms. Heinrich Deichmann. It belongs to the series of works "Everything For You (EFY)", which the Belgian artist Jan De Cock (*1976) has been performing for several years. He produces geometrical-abstract modules from building materials. These objects are transported to a city - be it Herford, Hong Kong, Mexico City, Carrara, Kiev or New York - and there arranged. Often included are Materials or colours found on site. With its raw aesthetics, materiality, and colourfulness, the sculpture made of exposed concrete, blue shell limestone, and architectural ceramics refers to Frankfurt's more recent and older past: to the ruins of the war-ravaged Old Town or the architecture of Brutalism in the demolished Historical Museum and Technical City Hall.
