DE.FI.CIEN.CY brings together Polish artist Andrzej Wróblewski (1927-57), Dutch artist René Daniels (b.1950) and Belgian artist Luc Tuymans (b.1958). In the hands of these artists, ‘deficiency’ becomes a positive agent of artistic achievement. Their shared preoccupation with the failure of pictorial representation is triggered by a range of personal and political issues, and this publication demonstrates affinities and disparities between the work of the three artists, across generations and cultures.
The colour illustrations are accompanied by observations derived from Ulrich Loock’s conversations with Joanna Kordjak, Dominic van den Boogerd, and Luc Tuymans. Tuymans also discusses the selection in an interview with Anda Rottenberg. Ulrich Loock has contributed an extensive discussion of the three artists’ oeuvres. The publication features documentation of the exhibition DE. FI. CIEN. CY: Andrzej Wróblewski, René Daniels, Luc Tuymans at Drawing Room, 21 May – 11 July 2015.
DE. FI. CIEN. CY was produced by Art Stations Foundation by Grazyna Kulczyk, Stary Browar, Poznan.
