About

The interplay between words and visually perceptible object configurations is a recurring theme in Alexander Viscio’s conceptual art. His constructions assume diverse forms throughout his oeuvre, initially connecting closely with the body, then evolving into installations that transcend the body and become objects, ultimately transforming words into spatial elements.

In his latest work, Roulette Wheel, Viscio’s body once again becomes an integral part of the performance during the opening night. The sculpture represents a Manhole cover that serves as a Roulette wheel where Alexander Viscio attempts to get the ball into its center from underneath, creating a dynamic interaction between body and object.

DROP OUTS at the Roulette Wheel marks Viscio’s third solo show at galerie michaela stock. the exhibition title is a hybrid that refers to the sculpture (Vehicles for Another Landscape/ VAL), and the wallpaper installation The DROP OUTS on an opposite wall. Three large pieces of paper drape over a brick wall where the statements, Sprawling Green Pastures, Under Deep Blues Skies, Over Friendly Yellow Facades confront the viewer. The three statements are drawn upside down and cut in order to drop out right side up to expose the brick wall though the empty spaces of the words.
