something in between – sergej vutuc «
SOMETHING IN BETWEEN is the title of Sergej Vutuc’s latest book, released by fine art publisher Snoeck in cooperation with Carhartt/ Work in Progress…
The 104-page book comes with a matte hardcover and features 70 b/w illustrations, digitalized from handmade prints that Sergej Vutuc produced in his darkroom using multiple ways of manipulation, and printed on a heavy, uncoated paper. Jocko Weyland, a New York based artist and author of “The Answer is Never”, illustrates Vutuc’s works in his essay “MAKE DEAD CITY MORE NICE” in the back of the book.
“… decayed and dilapidated man-made landscapes, the margins, the unsued, the disused. Nighttime and blur, shadows in the shadows, dark corners and mystery. A lonely lamp on in a window in an anonymous appartment block. The natural world vs. the concrete one and that uneasy coexistence. Minimal constructivist composition of a church topped by a cross, three black doors, fronted by black asphalt. Cobblestones and someone reaches an arm into a car. Then light flows through a perplexing hole behind a soaring kickflip in a steel full pipe and the ambigous chiaroscuro-tinted paradox of it all shines through.”
