Rainer Lagemann

Born on September 14th, 1959, in Düsseldorf, Germany, Rainer Lagemann embarked on an artistic journey that would come to captivate the world. He commenced his education at the Albert Einstein Gymnasium, proceeding to hone his design and artistic sensibilities at the University of FH Detmold, where he studied Interior Architecture from 1983 to 1987. Yet, it wasn’t until 2005 that Lagemann discovered his true calling: the art of welding, an endeavor where he uncovered a unique talent and unparalleled passion.
In Lagemann’s work, the timeless allure of the human form meets contemporary sensibilities. His focus revolves around the enduring theme of the human body in motion, capturing ephemeral moments of grace and emotion as if they were etched in time. Picture the fluid elegance of dancers like Nureyev or Baryshnikov frozen in mid-flight, and you’ll get a glimpse of what Lagemann achieves through his art.
Employing hollow metal squares as his medium, Lagemann crafts sculptures that evoke both the strength and fragility of the human condition. Each square serves as a metaphor for life’s trials and tribulations, with its four corners representing the intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual dimensions that comprise human existence. Stripped of extraneous detail, these squares leave the viewer with an unfiltered vision of humanity, balancing tangible realism with abstract profundity.
But there’s more. As daylight fades and artificial lights illuminate his works, the sculptures cast ethereal shadows upon surrounding walls, revealing a second layer of beauty, abstraction, and enigma. It’s as if the art takes on a life of its own, a duality that only enriches its appeal.
Rainer Lagemann’s creations have earned him numerous accolades and recognition. With a portfolio that boasts awards from esteemed festivals and exhibitions, his pieces adorn both public and private installations around the globe—from the lobbies of prestigious buildings in Singapore and Boston to coveted art centers and museums.
Public installations include noteworthy locations like the Lenox Hotel in Boston, Museum of Biblical Art in Dallas, and Harvard University’s i-Lab Building. His works are also part of permanent collections in several esteemed institutions, including the Museum of Biblical Art in Dallas, Harvard University’s iLab, and the Kreeger Museum in Washington DC.
Join us in experiencing the awe-inspiring world of Rainer Lagemann—a sculptor whose work transcends time and space, resonating with a universal understanding and appreciation of the human form.
