Catalogue Note

In his work Bojan Sarcevic creates open, ambiguous forms and situations that stem from a constant dislocation between different materials and techniques at the intersection between the various phases of the creative process and of sensible empiricism. Shifting between architecture, sculpture, drawing, photography, video and film, his work leads to encounters suspended between the work, the space and the observer. Over the past few years Sarcevic's work has been marked by an ever increasing interest in the formal investigation of line and volume, and in the properties and potential of different materials including concrete, Perspex, fabric, thread and a variety of woods and metals, often presented in unexpected combinations. While the smaller sculptures are generally simple in form, the larger ones can be quite complex. His smooth wooden and metal sculptures and his architectural interventions create a seductiveness that allows for something latent – something sensed or remembered but not seen – to appear. In an interview he spoke of his work as if it were an infrastructure: 'I don't think existence is a structure; it rather needs an appropriate structure to appear and disclose its originality.'

Bojan Sarcevic was resident artist at the Rijksakademie in 1999-2000.
