Publisher Note

On the occasion of the exhibition "Die Materie freut sich, Happy Matter" by Dennis Fuchs at the Laura Mars Gallery, a calendar for every year with monthly pages is published.
Illustrations of a selection of small sculptures are complemented by important national and international anniversaries such as the Chocolate Day, the World Cheese Day, Christmas and many more. Dennis Fuchs' small sculptures attribute an emotionality and the ability to act autonomously to everything material. The objects on display fluctuate between takeaway and restaurant, work and leisure, "high and low."

Since a stay in Japan, the artist has been working with replicas of food, which originally served to overcome language barriers when ordering in restaurants. Aesthetic and culinary decisions overlap in the production process of the small sculptures. They are given arms and legs and become animated. Arranged into sceneries on bistro tables, they either pass their time lethargically or productively. Among them are both standardized edibles and unconventional vegetables.
