Art Basel Unlimited

Tomo Savić-Gecan presents an ephemeral project that both extends the artist’s uncompromising, conceptual practice and acutely reflects our contemporary moment.

Untitled is a participative performance work based on randomly selected art news articles which are analyzed in relation to the latest ‘Art Market: An Art Basel and UBS Report’ to provide the data that feeds an artificial intelligence algorithm; this, in turn, prescribes the times, locations, and durations of the changes of intensity in selected lights inside Art Basel.

The various locations of the piece are announced daily on the website as well as on large screens situated at Unlimited and the booth of galerie frank elbaz. The public is invited to go to those locations and observe their surroundings, unwittingly becoming part of the performance themselves.

Tomo Savić-Gecan (born 1967 in Zagreb) represented Croatia at the 59th Venice Biennale in 2022. In 2020, he had a retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Zagreb, and a solo show at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Rijeka, in 2017. Savić-Gecan lives and works in Amsterdam.
