This catalogue accompanies the most comprehensive UK exhibition to date by Pavel Büchler. The artist was was born in Prague in 1952 and has been living in the UK since the 1980s. He is Research Professor at Manchester School of Art.
Büchler’s exhibition at Ikon consists of a wide range of media including text, found objects, obsolete technologies and appropriated digital material.
These combine logical scepticism with a smart sense of humour that draws attention to the strange nature of everyday life. Büchler through his practice is seeking to expose art as fundamentally strange.
A key piece in the exhibition is The Castle. This piece mirrors the notion of the perpetual outsider status, a key work in his exhibition, corresponds to an anxiety that is often engendered by cultural institutions.
Texts by Pavel Büchler, Jonathan Watkins, Robert Pfaller
Published on the occasion of the exhibition Pavel Büchler: (Honest) Work at Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, 13 May – 12 July 2015.
