This is a piece by YONATAN VINITSKY (1980, Jerusalem) entitled Loose Ends (Blue) (2015) that is currently part of the summer group exhibition at Galeria Nicodim in Bucharest. Earlier this year, VINITSKY presented a new series of works (including this one featured above) at Frutta Gallery in Roma, which comprised metal-coiled sculptures as well as large wall-based objects that reproduce ‘backseat storage pockets found on trains and planes, made of diverse materials such as metal, rope, elastic cord and woven fabric. The title of the show, Loose Ends, was based on a term borrowed from the genre of crime fiction and mystery literature; it indicates that something is still unaccomplished, that a definable and accurate passage within a process is not yet finished or solved’ according to the press release.
The group show at Galeria Nicodim entitled What IS a Bird? We Simply Don’t Know – in which is included a part of this series – attempts to reveal the materials and influences of the everyday as well as the role of the imaginary in the way artists shape and make sense of the world thanks to a conceptual and formal sophistication.
→ What IS a Bird? We Simply Don’t Know organized by DOMENICO DE CHIRICO with the work of YONATAN VINITSKY, ALEK O, RAZVAN BOAR, ANTOINE DONZEAUD, HENRY CHAPMAN, KENNETH ALME and VIRGILE ITTAH & KAI YODA is on view at Galeria Nicodim in Bucharest until July 31, 2015.
