Having spent over a decade demonstrating a flair for the absurd and the marginal, Nedko Solakov has long resisted the ordering impulse inherent in the midcareer survey. Curators Charles Esche (Rooseum, Malmö, Sweden), Enrico Lunghi (Casino Luxembourg), and Martin Sturm (O.K. Centrum für Gegenwartskunst, Linz, Austria) will most likely witness a show whose form changes as Solakov responds to each venue. Along with essays by the artist and curators, the accompanying catalogue will contain contributions by Saul Anton, Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, and Jordan Kantor, among others, that should shed new light on an ever-shifting, utterly unpredictable practice.
