Artist Statement

NEON belongs to the ethno-geometric works of Detlef Mallwitz  in which the public plays an important role.

 

Whereas Tomekai and DiDì are merely thought driven projects, where sculpture becomes thinking models, KAIRO and NEON work with the public.

 

Especially the tower project NEON TT (dancing tower) and the dance project NEON J&A invite people to participate.
