Untitled (Calendar), Sans titre (Calendrier)


Various materials (acrylic, chipboard, pages of block calendar, aluminium and blue scotch tape)

49.7 x 49.8 x 10 cm (19 9/16 x 19 5/8 x 3 15/16 in.) Seven pages on the ground: 11.5 x 7.7 cm (4 1/2) x 3 1/16 in.) (each)

The figures fall off: 5 and 6 seem caught in their fall and will never rejoin the other seven figures already piled on the ground. 7 hangs over them, still firmly attached to its support. A calendar that drops days one sheet after the next, Untitled (Calendar) fixes time in a composition that juxtaposes the pages of a tear-off calendar on a painted agglomerate panel. A blue line runs across the bottom and continues on the walls well beyond the wood square.

An installation that once again features the blue adhesive tape used systematically by Edward Krasiński from 1968 onwards, Untitled (Calendar) still stands out for its eloquence. Operating almost side by side with pure geometry, Krasiński inserts the calendar object as a subtle reference to the ephemeral.

The painting Untitled (Calendar) by Edward Krasiński was first shown by the Pinault Collection at the 2016 “Accrochage” ("Hanging") exhibition at the Punta della Dogana.
