Fritzlar, Germany, 1957), on the Grand Canal Terrace. Balkenhol’s carved wood figures appeared first in 1983 in reaction to abstract formalism and conceptual art, and with the intention of reintroducing the human body in contemporary art imagery. Balkenhol lives and works in Karlsruhe, Germany, and Meisenthal, France. He has exhibited widely in Europe and the United States, including at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, in Washington D.C.
