Croatian Artist Duo TARWUK Reflect on Chaos, Order and History in New Exhibition

On view at White Cube in London.

TARWUK is a Croatian artist duo comprising of members, Bruno Pogačnik Tremow and Ivana Vukšić. Raised during the Yugoslav Wars of the 1990s and now based in New York, the two revisit their traumatic upbringing through avant-garde painterly styles and anthropomorphic sculptures, such as their latest body of work on view at White Cube in London.

Entitled Posadila sam kost u zimskom vrtu, which in Croatian loosely translates to I planted a bone in the winter garden, the exhibition is a poetic reflection on the unpredictability of nature and human’s innate struggle in bringing order. A selection of new sculptures and large-scale paintings create a carnivalesque scene within the gallery, considered by TARWUK as “architectural models of organic growth,” where life is merely a performative act played upon a grand cosmic stage.

Riddled with art historical references — from the language of late 19th-century Symbolism and the Red Peristyle of 1968, to the statues of Ancient Greece and the metaphorical Garden of Eden — the show elicits the transformation of material and form. Catch the exhibition at the gallery’s Mason’s Yard location until March 18.

For more on art, Daniel Arsham teams up with Hublot to build a sundial made of snow and ice at the Matterhorn.
