Günther Uecker Turns 90 (* March13, 1930)

The painter and sculptor Günther Uecker is a world famous artist, thanks to his nail paintings. Uecker is born in Mecklenburg in 1930, where his father is an engineer. After finishing school he takes up an apprenticeship as a painter and advertising engineer before studying art, first in Wismar, later in East Berlin. In 1955 he leaves the GDR and continues his studies at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. It is during these years that he develops the first “nail panels”: nails are arranged in a relief-like pattern against a white ground in such a way that they have a three-dimensional, dynamic effect, thanks to interaction between light and shadow, shifting with one’s viewing angle. Soon Uecker starts fusing metal pins with everyday objects such as record players, sewing machines and grand pianos. In 1961 he joins the artist movement “ZERO”, founded by Heinz Mack and Otto Piene. The group proclaim a “zero hour” for art and are looking for a new beginning.

Beginning in the mid-1960 Uecker participates in big international exhibits, like the documenta in Kassel and the Biennale in Venice. He continuously expands his forms of expression, and in the following decades he also creates happenings and environments, stage design, films, works on paper and sound objects, in addition to his nail paintings and sculptures. Together with Gerhard Richter he mounts the action “museums can be habitable spaces” and causes a stir with his “terror orchestra”. From 1974 to 1995 he teaches at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf and travels extensively. He also experiments with materials like sand, water, electricity and metals during this time, and in the aftermath of the nuclear accident in Chernobyl he begins to work with ashes. In the 1990s he increasingly uses language and writing, he designs the prayer room in the German Parliament and a sacred pillar of stone for Buchenwald. In 2008 he co-founds the ZERO foundation, dedicated to the preservation and exploration of the famous artist group. The “nail artist”, whose works of art are sold for up to a million Euros at auctions, still lives and works in Düsseldorf.
