On the occasion of the Amsterdam Art Gallery Weekend 2020, Annet Gelink Gallery released a special edition by David Maljkovic. Using a unique technique for printing on industrial aluminum foil, The Evening Edition encompasses a single sheet that can be molded to any desired shape and to fit into any context.
In a historical moment, characterized by the speed of information and the spread of (fake) news, the title refers to the newspapers' evening editions which include breaking news revealed during the day when the morning edition is already printed.
Maljkovic's work often delves into issues surrounding the reception of (modern) art and the malleability of the experience of art, time and space. The artist presents viewers with works that react to and create their own space, time and history, whilst also offering views to the uncertainty of an unknowable future. In so doing, he often plays on the possibilities allowed by the media he uses, making works that counter a more intuitive use of the materials.
David Maljkovic, The Evening Edition, 2020. Print on aluminum foil, 39,5 x 95 cm.
Edition of 20, € 695,00.
The Evening Edition is imagined by the artist as a playful, performative object.
It his an inherent conceptual part of the work to be touched and built in the desired shape by its owner, and displayed in the most different backrounds. In this way, Maljkovic makes a step further in his practice, not only involving the viewer perception but also their physical interaction with the work.
