Venske & Spänle

Julia Venske & Gregor Spänle (1971 Berlin, 1969 Munich; live and work in Munich). They are an artistic couple who maintain a close link with sculpture, making peculiar organic forms known as Smörf the main feature of their work. These forms of endearing appearance contrast with the cold and rigid nature of the material of which they are made, marble.

Venske & Spänle have a long career in the international art scene, having exhibited their Smörfs in countries such as Australia, India, China, Eastern Europe, Senegal, Peru, New York and Mexico.
