Recently at Neuwerk – Großer Saal in Konstanz, Germany was “Holz & Beton,” featuring works by Jocko Weyland and Axel Görger. For the exhibition the two artists managed to forge, across time and space, a twenty-five year connection related to their passion for skateboarding. From a first meeting and discovery of common cause at a college house affectionately dubbed “The Hut” in suburban Clairemont, California, this relationship has spanned two and a half decades through postal correspondence, as well as intermittent personal encounters in Brixlegg, Austria, and Stuttgart, Germany. Both have over the intervening years used photography in relation to skateboarding, either capturing via cameras the actual act, or the structures that skateboarders find and/or build. On view was a large scale installation and a collection of photographs that lined the gallery walls.
