Within a contemporary grid of Art and Architecture Moto Waganari’s sculptural art embodies a unique figurative magic that defies simple categorizations. The sculpture itself becomes the space fragmenting and reflecting the light along the lines of its matrix. Thus the ‘enlightened’ forms are creating whole new visual worlds.
Be it an iconographically charged moving character or still sculptures full of mystical beauty and wonder: Waganari’s art represents a new kind of visual storytelling. As objects in galleries and as gargantuan architectural entities in (public) space, the sculptures tell dynamic tales of light and shadows from which whole new layers of meaning arise. Which is the character and which is the space? What is still spatial art and what has already become artful architecture?
