„[..] Jörg Plickat (b. 1954) creates sculpture in stone, steel, and bronze. He lives in Hamburg and Bredenbek (Schleswig-Holstein), and studied at the Muthesius School in Kiel. The intellectual aspect of Plickat’s sculpture involves the impact of relationships between volume, material, situation, and light and shade. His simplified geometrical formal language is comprehensible worldwide, unifying both intimacy and monumentality – as in the 25 ton work made from Chinese marble, which was chosen, after a two-year selection process, for presentation in Beijing’s Olympic Park where the 2008 Summer Olympics are being held.“
