Photographs, prints, collages, video installations, sculptures and in situ interventions… Bojan Šarčević holds nothing back. His work focuses on architecture, volumes, structures, frames and limits. Construction, deconstruction and reconstruction are the key words of this work in which lines and other geometric figures draw fragments of architecture in space, in 3D. In a neo-constructivist spirit, he deconstructs pieces of Arts Deco buildings, moving volumes to make abstract sculptures. Copper rubs shoulders with marble monoliths while his poetic videos are inseparable from the interiors in which he presents them... and along the way, he very subtly sows clues about his culture as a Bosnian having lived in the heart of a Sarajevo at war.
Trained at the Beaux-Arts in Paris and at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam, he has taught since 2008 as part of post-diploma at De Ateliers in Amsterdam. His work has been exhibited all over the world, from Manifesta in Luxembourg (1998) to the Setagaya Art Museum in Tokyo (1999) via the Tate Modern in London, the Berlin Biennale and the Venice Biennale in 2003. Exhibitions Personal works were dedicated to him at the Kunstmuseum of Liechtenstein or the IAC in Villeurbanne (2012), at the Kunstverein Hamburg (2008), at the Crédac in Ivry (2007), at the MAMbo in Bologna (2007).
