the Sinking Ship sculpture made its' debut at the exhibition “Mad House” at The Museum for Arts, New York in March, 2016 and then went on to the Venice Biennale in 2019.
Historically nothing really changes
The “Sinking Ship” is related to what is happening in Europe right now, it represents the fall of old Europe reflecting the recent political sentiments in this time we are living in, with all the threats and instability, the pretentiousness and manipulation of the politics.
Back at the turn of the last century the Titanic was representative of a modern society that believed it was invincible and could never fail, they built this ship the represented all the luxury of the modern life but on is maiden voyage sank. Historically nothing really changes and we walk the same track every time and make the same mistakes as a society believe we are invincible.
’Studio Job MAD HOUSE’ was a culmination in Studio Job’s trend for curating exhibitions of their own work dating back to 2009’s ’Studio Job Gallery’, and 2011’s ’Studio Job Lounge’ and ’Studio Job House’.
About the MAD HOUSE show
Studio Job MAD HOUSE was the first American solo exhibition of the work of Studio Job.
The commitment to craftsmanship reflects an ongoing interest in the revival of traditional applied arts practices, such as bronze casting, gilding, marquetry, stained glass, and faience, but with a contemporary approach. The atelier operates in the manner of an Old Master artist studio by engaging the skills of the most talented artisans in the production of their work.
