DESCRIPTION

Bortolami is pleased to present Totem Motif, an exhibition of recent work by Scott King which originated this past May at Between Bridges, Berlin, and will be recreated at Bortolami. The first variant of the exhibition featured four works that interrogate the utility of public sculpture—with all of the romanticism, optimism, and naivete that it can entail. This iteration of Totem Motif will include a new sculpture, Infinite Monument, which exists in several sections, infinitely expandable and infinitely monumental.

Scott King was born in Goole, East Yorkshire, England, 1969. He lives and works in London. In the 1990s he worked as Art Director of i-D magazine and later as Creative Director of Sleazenation magazine. As a graphic designer he has collaborated with such iconic figures as Malcolm McLaren, the Pet Shop Boys, Michael Clark and Suicide. King’s work has been exhibited worldwide as such institutions as the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; The State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg; the Institute of Contemporary Arts and the Barbican, London.
