When I went on the Europe trip on March this year, I had the chance to see the German Artist, Martin Honert’s exhibition at Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart, Berlin.
I am not familiar with German artists but his works caught my eye when I just stepped into the museum. I was so excited to come to this museum at that time as I was so impressive and fascinated by Martin Honert’s interesting sculptures.
Many of his sculptures are the transformations from his childhood memories, drawings or real life pictures that have meanings to him. He transformed these complicated memories into a scene in real sized sculptures, to tell the emotions and the personal stories behind them.
I found fascinating as these works take us to go through his dreams, memories or stories in realty, and at the same time influence me to look back to my own childhood innocence or eventful memories that matters me.
As the artists said: “Childhood is certainly not a theme because I think my own was particularly eventful or bad or good. My childhood was no doubt just as dull and boring as anyone else’s. What’s important to me is to explore things that may well have happened a long time ago but continue to exist for me as an image, a memory.”
