Edward Krasiński

Stedelijk Museum | Amsterdam
Price
€8.75 - €17.5
Presentation
The exhibition explores Krasiński’s entire artistic career, from the sculptures made using found objects in the early 1960s, to the installations produced at the turn of the 21st century. Krasiński took an experimental approach to making and exhibiting his art. Krasiński was inspired by pre-war avant-garde movements such as Polish Constructivism. In his work, he combined a wry sense of humour with a Dadaist fascination with chance.

Inspired by prewar avant-garde movements such as Polish Constructivism, Krasiński’s work combines a wry sense of humor and a fascination with chance. The retrospective features over fifty works, including suspended objects and wire sculptures, that testify to his interest in sculpture as line. In 1968 he introduced blue Scotch tape into his work. This simple, ready-to-use material, with which he connected spaces and objects, would become his trademark. Explaining its role in his work, he said, “I place it horizontally at a height of 130 centimeters everywhere and on everything. I encompass everything with it and go everywhere.”
