The work of Canadian-born, Berlin-based artist Angela Bulloch (born 1966) spans many mediums, manifesting her interest in systems, patterns and rules. Since 2014, in a new series of sculptures, Bulloch has taken the logic of geometry one step further into virtual space, where computers perform calculations and gravity relinquishes its usual limitations. The sculptures emerge from this process with an uncanny virtual appearance, as if they have been beamed into the room. Transporting the virtual further into the real, for The Wired Salutation, Bulloch collaborated with the composer and musician David Grubbs to create an immersive audiovisual performance involving musicians, avatars, video projections and theatrical lighting. Featuring documentation of Bulloch’s performances, sculptures, prints, wall paintings and more, Euclid in Europe includes texts by David Grubbs and Alexander Provan, a conversation with the artist and interactive links to music samples from The Wired Salutation.
