‘The best thing about two chairs is that you can sit between them.’ Hans Kudszus’ aphorism shows that you can discover new perspectives. Artists who work in several disciplines, such as Nikolaus Heyduck, utilise this diversity creatively. Heyduck, born in Kassel in 1957, is a versatile artist, composer and sound artist. He studied at the Städelschule in Frankfurt and the Akademie für Tonkunst in Darmstadt. His work encompasses various aesthetic areas: filmic, graphic, electro-acoustic and more. Despite the challenges posed by this diversity, Heyduck creates significant and innovative works. His openness and self-reflection lead to a unique artistic expressiveness. He shows that the fundamental aspects of art can be recognised and used if one does not limit oneself to a single direction. Heyduck proves that it is possible to sit on one chair and relax your legs on the other by combining and fostering the different potentials of the senses.
