Time, Space, Body, Transformations UP148

Klaus Rinke is a German artist who explored several artistic means (painting, sculpture) before concentrating on body art. He especially used the movement of the body, captured through performance and photographs, as a means to express the passing of time. The theme of the clock itself, especially the one used in German railways, is then introduced in relationship with the performances or as the subject of later installations, for example obsessively repeated in the Zeitfield sculpture in Düsseldorf.
