Abstract

Since I curated a small exhibition of Pavel Buchler's work for the Goethe Institut, Dublin, his practice has occupied a central space in my thinking about art and literature, exhibitions, institutions, media and the relationship between European and UK culture.In this essay, I was able to combine many of these concerns and write about just one work, Bloom Stool, which directly references James Joyce.It was an opportunity to show how incisively a work by Buchler can be rich in its art-historical, literary and cultural references and nevertheless achieve lightness and humour at the same time as unmistakably engaging our humanity and strengthening it.
