Josef Zekoff (*1977 in Vienna) painted vessels, for years. His stroke swings and sways. He is persistent and every image is a new one. Over and over again, he brings the blank form of a vessel onto the paper. Zekoff’s vessels are void forms and reveal the pictorial act of seizing, containing, and preserving. As they present the preservation of the world as an ever new possibility, they give a comprehensible form to it, in the first place. Supplemented by annintroductory essay by author Christian Malycha, this intricate, just as classically composed as playfully debaucherous artist book is a premiere and gathers a selection of 38 of Josef Zekoff’s oil pastel vessels.
