Ernst Gamperl is fascinated by the dialogue with living material and the quality of the unpredictable. He creates room-sized wooden objects into which he incorporates the natural drying process, cracks, and irregularities. This revolutionary technique of woodturning has led to completely new standards. Often at the limits of what is feasible, he creates sculptures of great power. Following exhibitions that were also well received in Japan and Korea, the Gewerbemuseum Winterthur now presents Ernst Gamperl’s Tree of Life project for the first time, which will then travel to other venues. In a ten-year process, Gamperl transformed a roughly 230-year-old uprooted oak into an ensemble of vessels and sculptures. The artist’s book conveys Gamperl's fascination with the material and the craft, brings us close to the objects he created, and documents his challenging work process.
