For his presentation at abc, Italian artist Andrea Kvas will present a large body of work of the latest years.
As a painter, Kvas creates works that are as much inhabitants of space as they are sculptural paintings.
Interacting with these ‘objects’ is an implicit concept of the work, a notion which involves a hands on approach to touch the work and move it around the space.
For abc, the performative element of the work is enhanced. Throughout the fair, two assistants will continually rearrange the work on show; designing exhibitions and altering presentations. The pieces will be in a constant state of movement: arranging, rearranging, stacking, folding. This is not so much a curatorial endeavor as an interactive illustration as to how the work can be. There is no one way to view the work, and the paintings themselves resist formal, static presentation.
