published by Heide Museum of Modern Art 2016
to accompany Alex Selenitsch’s exhibition Life Text
Heide Museum of Modern Art
24 October 2015 – 17 April 2016

The title of this exhibition is borrowed from a body of work that typifies Selenitsch’s poetic recycling of everyday and salvaged materials, another constant in his approach. His LIFE/TEXT series, the centrepiece of which is a concrete poem in the form of a life-size door, is among his many creations that explore the way that text and language function within the fabric of life rather than merely describing it.
