Zharko Basheski, born in 1957 in Prilep, is a Macedonian sculptor and professor at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Skopje.

His point of view in his work is human-oriented. Hence the interest of a hyper realistic approach in shaping the concept of the work, which in the theoretical projection goes beyond hyper realism. Talk about life and the world we live in.

The human condition.

In his work, there are several elements that are new to the world of sculpture and which make his latest work different. The concept, contemporary visions of the human condition through self-observation. The technical production and the use of new materials (polyester resin, poly marble, silicone, natural hair), the hyper-realistic treatment, the size of the work, the philosophical approach – which, united in one, offer a multi-layered reading Artwork.

Faculty of Fine Arts.

Currently a member of the National Accreditation and Assessment Council, UKIM Senate and Inter-University Conference. From 1999 to 2009, he headed the Department of Sculpture at the Faculty of Fine Arts. His work has been presented in several international exhibitions. He has been the recipient of numerous awards. Much of his work can be found in private collections in the country and abroad.

Born in 1974 in Birmingham, United Kingdom, Richard Hughes lives and works in London. Hughes’ sculptural practice is engaged in the counterproductive act of manufacturing decay and illusion. He creates objects that evoke, through their weathered appearance, the aftermath of good times past. His pieces are carefully crafted to look like: a found piss bottle covered in dew (“Roadsider”, 2005), a moldy old sofa with mushrooms growing on it (“After the Summer of Like”, 2005). Flip-flops half buried in the ground (“The Last Drag”, 2005). Far from simple ready-mades, Hughes’ works are laborious copies of bric-a-brac. They appear as residual artifacts that epitomize the moment when suburban working-class culture enters the mainstream. Bringing with it a multitude of inappropriate objects.

Hans Op de Beeck (BE) produces large installations. Sculptures, movies. Drawings, paintings. Photographs and texts. Her work is a reflection on our complex society and the universal questions of meaning and mortality that resonate within it. He considers man as a being who depicts the world around him in a tragicomic way. Op de Beeck wants above all to stimulate the senses of the viewers and to invite them to really experience the image. Hans seeks to create a form of visual fiction that offers a moment of wonder and silence.

Sensory facilities.

Over the past twenty years, Op de Beeck has produced numerous monumental “sensory” installations. In which he evoked what he describes as “visual fictions”: deserted tactile spaces like an empty setting in which the spectator can walk or sit down. Sculpted refuges for introspection. In many of his films however, unlike these depopulated spaces, he highlights anonymous characters.

Hans Op de Beeck was born in Turnhout in 1969. He lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. Op de Beeck has shown his work extensively in solo and group exhibitions around the world.

With wadding and fabric, Anne Bothuon models her sculptures, her characters.

Like a Fate, by dint of stitches, knots, flanges, repeats. It reveals a body, not a body in glory, but a body common to all with its faults and its small imperfections, far from media images.
The choice of a human-sized scale gives the sculptures a mirror effect, bringing the viewer back to himself.

Exchange of glances, embroidered glances?

With or without a base, they have their feet on the ground. Fly weightless or fall off balance as light as they are powerful.
The dyed and re-embroidered tarlatan gauze gives them transparencies close to skin tone.

Far from contemporary technology, Bothuon chose the thread and the needle and placed at the center of its concerns, the human.

Russian artist and sculptor Leonid Sokov was born in a village. Her father, manager of a dairy factory, was killed during the war. As a child, he learned to make wooden toys. Brought to Moscow in his youth, he continues to appreciate the craftsmanship of sculpture. He chose sculpture as his field at the Moscow Middle Art School, a school for gifted children). Between 1964 and 1969 he studied at the Stroganov Higher School of Industrial Art in Moscow. After graduating, he worked as an animal sculptor, but soon gave up a career accepting official commissions.

Alexander Kosolapov.

Between 1966 and 1969, he shared a studio with his colleague and friend Alexander Kosolapov. In 1976, for the unofficial festival of “apartment exhibitions” in Moscow. He organizes a Pop Art and Conceptualist exhibition in his studio in Moscow. Thus, he also exhibited his first Pop Art works. Sokov emigrated from the USSR in 1979 and has lived in New York since 1980. His first solo exhibition was at the Storefront Gallery in 1983. In 1986 he took part in the seminal exhibition Sots Art, at the New Museum, in New York, curated by Margarita Tupitsyna. Sokov’s first retrospective in Moscow took place in the summer of 2012 at the Museum of Modern Art in Moscow.

70’s.

He is a living representative of Sots Art. In the early 1970s, he developed a passion for American Pop Art then, under the influence of Komar and Melamid, created a series of sociopolitical sculptural objects. His recognizable style began to form in Moscow, with a deliberately rough finish, resembling naïve amateur work, but at the same time very precise and expressive. He is not limited to sculpture, working in drawing, collage, painting and installations. Like most Sots Artists, Sokov manipulates the canons of ideological production and contemporary myths.

Low tongues.

He likes to create his own instruments and fantastic signs of power. Religious objects in national colors, while using “low tongues”. Of folkloric intrigues, swear words and jokes. Once outside the USSR, Sokov offers his version of the “dialogued” forms of Sots Art. Built on the juxtaposition of the USSR and the West and the paradox of discovering similarities between the two polar worlds. This led to the creation of “Stalin and Monroe” and “Lenin and Giacometti”. One of the directions of his art is related to the genre of moving objects: ironic wooden monuments with electric mechanisms. Interactive mechanical game objects, simulating the style of folk crafts, for example, “Ears of Andropov”.

Indonesian sculptor Eddy Prabandono is an artist who involves design. The planning and construction in the creation of his large-scale pieces. He did not work on his pieces alone. As in a project, Eddi Prabandono involved many workers: to create drawings and even work plans. He often used building plans that require [careful] calculation. However, his pieces did not become structural things, due to the way he incorporated evolving languages ​​of expression into their creation.

Expression languages.

This way of working was born out of critical reflection. Eddi Prabandono believes that the emergence of new media in the development of the current artistic world does not lead to the discovery of new languages ​​of expression. As such, he believes that works that deviate from conventional means of expression are [perpetually considered] experimental. Prabandono, who tends to have little need for conventional speaking languages, feels the importance of discovering a speaking language.

Hitchhiking.

In this research, he “stopped” on work processes that involve design. Work plans and constructions. Through work processes with a clear modus operandi, he [finally] discovered a working language with clear grammar. He built his language of expression through this working language. That is to say that it is not always subject to the rules of this working language. He provokes language, looks for problems, looks for his answers to solve them.

First working as a painter, Stipl turned to sculpture. Using himself as a model, Richard comprehensively focuses on indefinite nature. The moment-to-moment paradoxes inherent in the act of continually recreating oneself throughout a lifetime. Characteristically, Stipl’s paintings and sculptural works force us to reconsider the role of boundaries. Resulting categories of choice that include contemporary attitudes and approaches to creating and consuming art. Stipl has exhibited worldwide. It is part of many important public and private collections. In recent years, his work has attracted media and critical attention wherever he has exhibited.

A multi-faceted sculptor, he experiments with artistic forms in an intriguing interplay between truth and illusion. The poetics of the impossible and the philosophy of the artificial. The optical deception of mimesis. The search for grotesque connections converge in works characterized by metaphorical allusion and conceptual practice. From the interpretation of archetypal symbols and mythological tales, he shapes bizarre autonomies in sculptures made with multiple materials. Generating environmental installations characterized by the interaction between sculpture and gold thread.

Stratanatomy.

Since 2012, he has been working on Stratanthropy. A cycle of sculptures and installations inspired by mythological tales. Metamorphoses told by Ovid as in Aracne Futura. 2012, a sculptural installation exhibited at the Fondazione Museo Pino Pascali. Polignano. Bari and Pleiades. 2014, exhibited at Macro la Pelanda, Rome. Since 2015 he has been working on a series of works designed in close comparison with the Renaissance frescoes painted by Pietro Da Cemmo in Crema. Thus creating a series of works entitled Scaramanzia exhibited at the San Domenico de Crema Theater Foundation. His work has been exhibited in exhibitions and projects in Belgium, England, Spain, Germany, USA.

Humor.

An artist with versatile creativity, he uses an incredible number of materials, both precious and simple, to create sculptures. Installations and original works. Each imbued with a rich vein of humor. He transforms reality by playing with concepts and objects which, as the artist affirms, “Everything is transformed, everything is reused, everything is readjusted”. His works often show a strong connection with nature, bizarre in its micro and macro figurazione. At the same time, Boezio pays a clear homage to technology with its useless trinkets that man seems practically unable to do without. His work has been featured in exhibitions and projects in Germany. Spain. England. Belgium and the United States.
