For the exhibition New Reproductions, David Maljkovic has created an extensive display of his work which provides a new reading of his artistic practice and the exhibition format itself.
The show presented six new reproductions of previous projects by the artist, and deals with conceptual strategies and utopian references past and present. It included animation, slide projection and collage, as well as sculptures as reconfigured objects.
The artist book New Reproductions, published in conjunction with the exhibition, designed by Åbäke, is a dense object in which the textual contributions function as poetic and fictional response to the artist’s collaged 48 images. Here, Maljkovic provides a certain utilitarian take on re-reading, remembering, incompleteness, and exhaustion as artistic positions in order to assemble filiations between works separated by time span and by his changing ideas.
