No One’s Voice Florian Pumhösl

Published by Rhombus Press, New York, 2016, 40 pages (colour ill.), 14.2 × 22.1 cm, English

Price: €22

Florian Pumhösl processes the tropes of art, architecture and graphics of the modernist avant-garde to create new aesthetic systems through painting, film and installation. He addresses the legacy of modernism through its canon of abstract visual language, from utopian architectural plans and buildings to innovations in publishing, the politics implicit in exhibitions and the motifs of early experimental filmmaking.

This particular body of work furthers the artist’s involvement with cartography and territorialization. The reliefs originate from stamp drawings of simple linear and rectangular progressions, and are made by pouring plaster into silicone molds; however, the initial forms are hand-constructed, and the final works hand-painted.

Designed by Martha Stutteregger.
