In the second part of our Vincent Tavenne tour we attend the openings of the exhibitions at Café Scholz, the city hall of Stuttgart and the Hospitalhof Stuttgart. While Upstairs at Café Scholz presents smaller works by Vincent Tavenne, larger sculptures are on display at City Hall Stuttgart and Hospitalhof. One of the highlights is certainly Tavenne’s installation in the tower gallery of the Hospitalhof, a sculpture that fills the entire stairway.
Vincent Tavenne was born 1961 in Montbéliard, France. From 1983 until 1985 he studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf with Ulrich Rückriem. In 1999 he was awarded the Villa Romana Prize. He lives and works in Berlin.
