"Capturing space with the forms of motion, transforming and compacting it in order to release it; and to leave these forms of motion and space (transferred space) behind as something visible; that's what I do when I create a sculpture."
Norbert Kricke, 1961, quote after: Künstler. Kritisches Lexikon der Gegenwartskunst, p.14.
