Metal is an intriguing material. During all stages of human history metal has played an important part in daily life- both in the past and today.

It is a material that predates recorded history but exhibits our capacity for reflection and transcendence, our self-consciousness of our mortality, and the resulting issues of the meaning of life and life after death. Metal, like the human being, is fascinating. 

"Marianne Kantert works with welding rods, sheet metal, and the oxy-acetylene-welding technique. Some of her work look like three-dimensional line drawings. She plays with negativ and positiv form. The empty spaces may say more than the full ones." Blazenka Perica, curator
