Product Description

"Human beings not only discern geometric patterns in nature and create abstract spaces in mind, they also try to embody their feelings, images, and thoughts in tnagible material". (Yi-Fu Tuan, Space and Place: The Perspective of Experiance, 2007, p.17)

The book Martin Papcún. Buildings/Spaces surveys of the previous decade of the artist’s work. Essays by Christine Nippe and Petr Rezek supplement the survey of works and broaden the perspective on Papcún.

Papcún’s research-based practice is informed by his long-term interest in relationships, definitions of private and public space and the gaps between them. Works presented in the book examine the differences between communication systems — those of states, nations, subcultures and individuals, and their own languages — and systematically interprets broad socio-political systems.
