Installation Sam Pulitzer

Sam Pulitzer - Winner of 2017

Sam Pulitzer has been awarded the Baloise Art Prize for the precision, depth and virtuosity of the drawings presented in his installation for the exhibition booth, where he adroitly exploits transparency and opacity in order to test the viability of his art. He additionally enquires into the function and meaning of the stream of new images, logos and labels with which we are confronted day after day, organizing or perverting our communication and relations with our fellow human beings. The truth of the matter is that they do, indeed, do both: they bring us closer together and keep us at bay, just as Pulitzer’s corridors impose closeness on us in tandem with isolation.
