Rudolf Polanszky: Reconstructions

Gagosian director Ealan Wingate describes his first visit to Rudolf Polanszky’s studio outside Vienna and discusses the development of the artist’s practice, from his early works informed by the legacy of the Viennese Actionists to the Reconstructions, which he began in the 1990s. A selection of these assemblage-type wall works and sculptures was presented at Gagosian in New York in early 2020.
