Galerija Gregor Podnar is pleased to announce its second solo exhibition of B. Wurtz.


Presenting a selection of Wurtz’s works from the first two decades of his artistic practice, the exhibition aims to highlight the formation of Wurtz’s idiosyncratic formal vocabulary during the 1970s and 1980s. From the 1970s onwards, Wurtz has been using commonplace materials that relate to the basic categories of life – food, clothing, shelter – to create sculptures that probe and explore the notions of monumentality and the quotidian. Combining and amending these materials, Wurtz began to cast the familiar in a new light while preserving the integrity of the used objects. With great attention to the range of the chosen materials and a nuanced sensibility for composition, Wurtz has been since the early works transforming fragments of the ordinary into sculptures of wit and poetic composure.
