Andreas Golinski

2010 residency

Interested in the true essence of the past, Golinski recovers and uses objects and materials that identify a place bringing them back to the present. During his residency, Golinski (1979) retrieves a story, one of a land cultivated with vineyards. He uses the old rows abandoned and reduced to coils of wire piling them up to erect a column. A circular incoherent pillar mimics the ruins of the nearby Valley of the Temples. The project also moves to the wall; centuries-old jute sacks, used in the past to transport the wine on horseback, are deprived of their normal use by cuts and geometric seams that give them a new identity. A strict dialogue between past and contemporary time, a redemption offered by art.
