When Daniel Silvo first send me Square, I thought there was nothing there. Much like you expected to see something above, but it seems just empty space. I thought he forgot the attachment. Then I double clicked some space in the mail, it opened and it looked like an empty document. It took me several conceptual steps and moments of exciting discovery to see what exactly he had made and send me.
I loved that journey — experience it for yourself; click buy immediately and download and explore SQUARE. Or read my description of the edition if you want to know exacty what you will be getting before you download.
Daniel Silvo works in a wide range of media, from video and photography to installation, drawing and sculpture. More important than the medium is the critical investigation into what is or can be communicated: interferences in verbal and visual communication is a recurring theme in his work. He approaches abstract, philosophical and theoretical subjects with a great sense of humour.
This edition has a fixed price of $5,- The download includes two PDFs: the work and a booklet with background information on the artist.
