Distortion, Venice Biennale, 2009

Putnam, James (2009) Distortion, Venice Biennale, 2009. [Show/Exhibition]

Type of Research: Show/Exhibition
Creators: Putnam, James

Putnam’s research entailed making site visits to the Gervasuti Foundation and undertaking art historical research. Distortion has been a significant and vital feature of creative expression throughout the history of art. While the artist’s mind strives for compositional symmetry and harmony, it also has a penchant for creating imbalance and distortion for expressive and emotional ends where not only figures, but also objects, scale and space can be distorted.

‘Distortion’ is published in the official Venice Biennale catalogue and Gavin Turk’s ‘Distortion’ project is documented in – En Face ISBN: 978-84-96159-89-1 published by CAC Malaga.
