A delicate Balance



In 1973 André Cadere walked his Round Bar of Wood on the Avenue des Gobelins in Paris. In Remixing André Cadere’s act, Frank Bezemer walks this almost 9 feet long (265cm) Bar of Wood in Munich. Starting at the sculpture from Mauro Staccioli (Der Ring) on the Luisenstraße he walks to the Königsplatz and then Karolinenplatz.  (November 9, 10 and 11 2011)

Romanian Staff


Frank Bezemer has recently created wooden bars made of birch branches that he cut into segments, painted with ten different colours and then joined back together. Each bar consists of twenty eight segments painted in black, blue, brown, green, grey, purple, orange, red, yellow and white.



The Romanian Staff was adopted by Theaster Gates in his show 12 ballads. (Documenta 13: june 9 till september 16 2012)   Hugenottenhaus. Friedrichstrasse 25 Kassel
