Martin Konietschke – Man in the Wind – Germany

Metal symposium 2013

In 2012, we visited Martinsmarkt in the partner town of Dieburg. There, we asked our acquaintances whether they knew a good artist-blacksmith. Martin Konietschke was unhesitatingly recommended to us. After a short meeting, he agreed to participate in the first Metal Symposium.

In the first year, we did not require the works to be three-dimensional, but we set size limits up to a maximum of 2 metres. This condition, however, was somehow lost in communication. And we have to admit that even the fact that he had ordered a 2 x 4-metre plate did not strike us. His work was significantly affected by bad weather during the event, so we had to find another site in a big hall where he eventually could work alone.

 Although Martin Konietschke was almost clear about what he was going to make, he only began to sketch on the spot. After transferring the sketch to the plate, he started to cut the image out with a plasma cutter. As soon as the work had been cut, he cleaned up the sharp edges with an angle grinder.

 It was a bit difficult to find a suitable location for his work in Mladá Boleslav. It could not be installed in the open, because of the fact that such a large sheet could be torn off by strong wind – which is funny actually, as the work was named “Mann Im Wind” (“Man in the Wind”).

The work is now fixed on the hangar of the Mlada Boleslav Airport and is well visible from the Metoděj Vlach Aircraft Museum. This Museum also houses the work “Ikarus-Opus Ferrum” by Tobbe Malm.
