Gabreil Wiese

“Now it is assigned a new history, a new meaning.

Gabriel Wiese is intensely occupied with the cork. He has covered existing furniture with cork, created new forms using steel infrastructures and cork veneers, and made works of nothing but cork. His goal has been in "changing the simple stopper into an object of art." Weise likes the particular history of the cork, from an old tree in Portugal to the neck of a bottle in St. Emillon. “Now it is assigned a new history, a new meaning.”
