Goshka Macuga, To The Son Of Man Who Ate The Scroll, 2015

 

 

 

 

Goshka Macuga is an eclectic artist who works in a variety of media including sulpture, installation, photography, architecture, and design. To the Son of Man Who Ate the Scroll, developed for the Fondazione Prada’s spaces in Milan, is the culmination of an ongoing period of detailed research attempting to formulate a methodological categorization of material and information on time — beginnings and endings, collapse and renewal.

In the exhibition, Macuga explores the art of rhetoric and arti cial memory as intrica- tely linked tools that represent the base for the organization and advancement of human knowledge.
