Una scala appesa al cielo consists in a staircase with cable sections of the old Mont Blanc cableway instead of the pegs. The wool weaving re-evokes, moving up and down between the rungs, the movement of the cabins that come and go. The red of the wool, which warms up, means energy: propulsion and heat. But the red threads also materialize a thought that reaches the heights always first, then followed by the body. Line of the spirit, of desire and of aspiration.

Miele Luna is made with old newspapers that street vendors use to stuff the fake designer bags.

In collaboration with Galleria Massimo Minini, Monk’s subtle sense of irony also appears in the 25 pages of fashion and design magazines in which the artist renews his tribute to famous Italian artist Salvo.

David Maljković: Also on view

opening February 9, until April 7, 2019

The Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago, 5811 South Ellis Avenue, Chicago, USA

Throughout an ever-shifting body of work, David Maljković returns to “the question of form,” asking how considerations of form itself might illuminate the ebb and flow of ideologies, for example, or the overlaying of past, present, and future.

Gathering elements that originate from different projects, in the wake of major exhibitions of his work in recent years, here Maljković stages a fluid effort to consider the underlying structure of his practice.
