Gabriela Seifert and Goetz Stoeckmann at Living Room

Gabriela Seifert and Goetz Stoeck­mann have prac­ticed in Frank­furt since 1983.
Their res­i­den­tial build­ing liv­ing room in the medieval town of Gelnhausen unique­ly chal­lenges the archi­tec­tur­al tenets of inside and out­side, pub­lic and pri­vate. They explore archi­tec­ture and art in com­bi­na­tion, cre­at­ing built works under the label seifert.stoeckmann and spa­tial arte­facts under the label for­mal­haut. Their artis­tic research erodes the idea of bound­ary, stud­ies the emer­gence of beau­ty in the enig­mat­ic lay­er­ing of two phys­i­cal, space relat­ed dualisms: form as mat­ter and space, light as par­ti­cle and wave.
