OVER THE LAST 10 YEARS JANOS KORBAN AND STEFANIE FLAUBERT HAVE DEVELOPED A SCULPTURE PRACTICE EXPLORING METAL AND MOTION IN THEIR SYDNEY WORKSHOP.

THEY HAVE A BACKGROUND IN EXPERIMENTAL ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN WITH METALWORK SKILLS DEVELOPED AND HONED IN GERMANY IN THE 1990S. 

THE DUCTILITY AND LUSTRE OF METAL ARE CENTRAL TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF KORBAN AND FLAUBERT'S FORMS. THEIR FASCINATION WITH METAL AND ITS MANIPULATION IN THE WORKSHOP LEADS TO SCULPTURE WITH A SENSE OF MOVEMENT AND CONTAINED ENERGY. THE ELASTICITY OF THE TRAVELLING LINE IS REVEALED IN PIECES WHICH STRETCH AND CONTRACT AS YOU MOVE AROUND THEM.

CENTRAL TO THEIR WORK IS AN EXAMINATION OF THE TENSION BETWEEN INSTABILITY AND EQUILIBRIUM. THIS REVEALS ITSELF IN FINISHED WORKS WITH A SENSE OF ACTION AND UNPREDICTABILITY.

OVER THE YEARS THEY HAVE DEVELOPED SIGNIFICANT SKILLS IN METAL.  THE METAL WORKSHOP GIVES THEM DIRECT CONTROL OVER THE METAL AND FREE REIN FOR EXPERIMENTATION.  MODELMAKING AND LARGE SCALE METAL MANIPULATION ARE CENTRAL TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF SCULPTURE AND INSTALLATIONS. MATERIAL AND ACTION.

KORBAN AND FLAUBERT HAVE SHOWN SCULPTURE IN SOLO EXHIBITIONS IN AUSTRALIA, PALM SPRINGS AND SOHO, NYC.  THEY WERE ALSO FEATURED IN SCULPTURE BY THE SEA IN 2003 AND 2011. KORBAN AND FLAUBERT HAVE EXHIBITED DESIGN WORK INTERNATIONALLY AND ARE REPRESENTED IN DESIGN MUSEUM COLLECTIONS IN AUSTRALIA, THE U.S. AND GERMANY.

ARCHITECTS HAVE COMMISSIONED SCULPTURE FOR PUBLIC SPACES IN A VARIETY OF PROJECTS.
