ILYA & EMILIA KABAKOV

 The artist couple from the former Soviet Union lives on Long Island , New York , and is among the most renowned contemporary artists. Their ‚Äč‚Äčinstallations are internationally acclaimed. The artists were awarded the “Praemium Imperiale” in 2008. In 2017 a retrospective will present their work at Tate Modern in London, where Ship of Tolerance will be on show again.

Several projects carried out with the Kunsthaus Zug (exhibitions, publications) as well as the Drinking Fountain of 2003 on Zug’s station square testify to the close artistic bond the artist duo has developed with Zug over more than fifteen years.

Remec’s most recent work is his ongoing Totem Series whose origins involved utility poles, regular fixtures of the urban and suburban landscape. Adhering readymade objects to the poles, such as safety mirrors, bicycles, mops, brooms, and rearview mirrors, he transforms them into contemporary totems. While indigenous totem poles of the Pacific Northwest are frequently associated with religious ceremony, they typically performed a social rather than spiritual role—recording important events, legends, and clan lineages. Referencing these functions, Remec's works speak to facets of the present urban and suburban condition—paranoia, consumerism, narcissism, and indifference.

His work has been exhibited in leading museums such as the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in North Adams, MA, The Museo de Arte in Ponce Puerto Rico, LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton, NY and the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art in Peekskill, NY.
