Vincent Szarek
Moving in Stereo, 2004

Vincent Szarek’s sculptural objects appear as formal superlatives: luxuriously gleaming surfaces, seamless and all of a piece, seem to have dropped from the sky and been shaped aerodynamically by the resistance of the air. In fact Silver Slide and Red Hoods are artistic treatments of design elements taken from the Mercedes-Benz SLR. Szarek’s lacquered fiber-glass objects are based on computer-generated designs that are then constructed, down to the last detail of the finish, on a production line developed by Szarek himself. “I work on sculptures on the basis of special products and individual presentations. These sculptures relate to cars and other special products in the object field. The manufacturing process includes digital technologies (CAD/CAM) permitting rapid and infinitely variable formal changes. I am interested in individualizing objects from modern series production, of the kind that are increasingly more (and more cheaply) available and accessible to individuals.” (V.S.)
