Zenita Komad, Opus IV: Selected Works

[Wien]: Zenita Universe Production, 2008. First edition. Softcover. 1/2000. Large quarto. [4], 252, [8]pp. Original photo-illustrated wrappers. Illustrated with numerous color photographic reproductions, the central focus of this monographic catalogue is Zenita, as a woman, an individual, an artist, a part of the art community. The goal is nothing less than tearing down the walls between art and life. She has succeeded in doing this light-handedly, without any proclamations of pathos, with a twinkle in her eye. She draws from the world of things, of commodities, ideas and art, selecting what appears useful to her, transforming it and incorporating it in her “Zenita Universe” – in the guise of texts, images, reliefs, sculptures, but usually hybrids and ensembles that transgress the boundaries of genres. Komad’s oeuvre reveals great stylistic openness, even when she has elaborated a repertory of signs and symbols to which she returns time and again. It is striking how often the eye figures as a mode of expression in her pictures – either in realistic form or in the style of a comic – even from the light bulb head of her air work, which we can also read as a personification of the artist – such wide-open eyes stare at a world replete with miracles and mysteries, waiting for something to appear in full light. Wrappers partly rubbed and creased along edges. Text in German and English. Wrappers in overall good- to good, interior in very good condition. g+. Item #38558
