Götz

Arndt

Stonecutting-woodcutting

Born in 1962 in Germany, Götz Arndt lives and works in Paris. A stonecutter in Bavaria, he graduated from the Beaux-Arts de Paris in 1992 and runs the materials / space lab with Fabrice Vannier and Philippe Renault.

His artistic concerns are primarily with contextualized sculptural interventions, namely those situated in public space and that probe the history, use and attributes of their sites. The means used are economical, the aim being to integrate his sculpture ensembles in such a way as to bring out slight discrepancies between them and the existing architecture, discrepancies understood to hone our perception of space. His studio explores materials, their challenges and shaping, while taking space, lines, density and forms’ multiple variations into account. Götz Arndt has done public commissions in Germany, Luxembourg and France and he exhibits in Europe and Asia. His works are represented in public and private collections.
