A Curious Contortion in the Method of Progress – L’ellipse d’ellipse
Nathalie Ergino & Friedemann Malsch (Eds.)
The basic principle of Bojan Šarcˇevicˇ ’s work is the open form: “My exhibitions are not the expression of a position, but rather a reflection of the origins of that position.” This long-awaited survey of Šarcevic’s career presents works that meander between monumental sculptures, filigree-embellished murals and multilayered films. Aesthetic questions central to the artist’s multidisciplinary sculptural practice confront us in a deceptively simplistic manner, asking how the divide between art and life can be overcome. Feeding off the work of countless historic forerunners, be it the Moscow Constructivists or the architects Hans Poelzig, Erich Mendelsohn and Hans Scharoun, the artist’s work (from 1999 to the present) is reviewed for the first time in this sensational publication. Essays by Michel Gauthier, Martin Herbert and Christiane Meyer-Stoll.
