Alex Selenitsch: Life/text

Though primarily known as a concrete poet, Alex Selenitsch works across a broad spectrum of disciplines from architecture to artist books, collage and sculpture. His practice in each of these areas is underpinned by a creative exploration of the notion of theme and variation, often using found materials and the pre-existing systems of language and mathematics.

Art Exhibition previously on at Heide Museum of Modern Art in Victoria, Australia.
From Saturday 24 October 2015 to Sunday 17 April 2016

Selenitsch has a long connection to Heide initiated through his friendship with Sweeney Reed, the adopted son of John and Sunday Reed. In 1969 Sweeney’s Strines Gallery was the venue for Selenitsch’s debut exhibition of concrete poetry, the first show of its kind in Australia. Several of these early concrete poems feature in LIFE/TEXT together with other examples from the Heide Collection and select public and private collections, surveying five decades of Selenitsch’s career.
