Summary

Published on the occasion of Rudolf Polanszky's first exhibition with Gagosian, this publication highlights recent paintings and sculptures by the Viennese artist.

Rudolf Polanszky's cerebral and uniquely multidisciplinary work embraces the chance occurrences that arise throughout the creative process. The recent works presented in this volume exemplify the canvas-mounted and floor-based assemblages that he has been developing since the 1990s. To make his richly textured assemblages, Polanszky shatters and recombines salvaged industrial materials--including acrylic glass, aluminum, silicone, and wire--into purely aesthetic forms, freeing them of their original contexts.

An essay by Francesco Stocchi considers the artist's work in relation to the concept of the void, while a conversation with the artist by Hans-Ulrich Obrist offers an overview of Polanszky's career. These illuminating texts are accompanied by full-color plates, ample rich details, and photographs of the artist at work in his studio.
