Goshka Macuga

Av Lars Vilks - 8 maj 2009 20:02

Goshka Macuga (b. 1967), a Polish-born artist based in London, tests and transcends the boundaries of sculpture, installation, exhibition design and photography. She ventures into a variety of disciplines, including art making, curating, art history, ethnology, psychology and esoteric science. Macuga's many exhibition projects and publications converge in a multi-faceted oeuvre that cannot be squeezed into such pigeonholes as "politically committed" or "formalist." In short, her work is rigorous in form and anarchistic in content.

The artist's practice has always been marked by an interest in collaboration with other artists and cultural producers. Macuga also makes extensive use of existing cultural material: original arts and crafts; documents related to historical figures, such as artists, their patrons and their opponents; forms of exhibition display devised and applied in diverse political contexts; and references to vernacular culture. For Macuga, art is a tool for understanding and a blueprint for social change.

  For the Biennial the artist has created an event of installations What in a War (The Raft Memorial). She has borrowed Théodore Géricault’s The Raft of Medusa (1818)  from the Louvre for a short exhibition in Ladonia. Also included in the project is a public sculpture of the Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt.
