Žarko Bašeski: Asphyxia, 2017

23 February–3 March 2018

Žarko Bašeski’s latest work Asphyxia (sculpture; silicon, nylon, natural hair; 200 x 180 x 160 cm), is a powerful symbol of man’s existential condition in the modern world. This work can be understood as a desperate cry of the mankind, dying in a suicidal agony. This agony is represented by a man’s bizarre suicide attempt.
What we see is a terror-stricken, suffocating face of a man’s head, fighting for breath in a transparent plastic bag, while images of beautiful and pleasant memories of his life run inside his mind (by way of a video projection). The artist has created this sculpture simulating human flesh and skin by using silicon, artificial paints and hairs, so as to highlight man’s intrinsic carnal character, his physical presence in the world, amidst the emptiness, the void, in which only images of memories float. The projection of this deluge of recollections at the moment of death emphasizes the presence of death in this work even more.
– Emil Aleksiev
