Unbreak my heart, say you’ll love me again (2009)

This publication covers three branches of artistic practice – all linked under the same title Unbreak my heart, say you’ll love me again. 

 

The first part presents an encyclopedia, a white sculptural installation. This piece literally illustrates the cultivation and the mind mapping of artistic practice with the countless dilemmas related to it. In this part of the book the artist’s own encyclopedic system is unfolded with observations by art historian Natalia Gutman and curator Elena Tzotzi. The second part depicts an arrangement of eight paintings. These paintings are each measurements of formalistic methods as well as they are figuratively telling the story of the overall title of this book. The third part of the book describes the idea of the all-coherent master painting.

 

The poster below is part of the standard book. It illustrates the different working methods of the encyclopedia. These graphic maps are described in detail in the book. Read more about this project here on the artists website.
