In the “Andante” exhibition in 2014, artist Christian Lemmerz filled the underground space in the most beautiful way, making wax sculptures of huge candelabras.

According to Christian Lemmerz, art needs no explanation, only silence. With the installation “Andante”, Lemmerz created a meditative, sacral space where the quiet dripping of candlelights mimicked the structure and shape of the underground dripstones.
