The Tower

Ion Bitzan
  • Date: 1992
  • Style: Conceptual Art
  • Genre: sculpture
  • Media: mixed technique

His "Tower" 1992, a mammoth and magnificent reading table supported on hand-carved legs with busts resembling a composite of a Baroque portrait and angelic putty, contains sheets of weathered, ocher, hand-made papers with unreadable script piled atop each other, the leaves forming a mound of suggestive occult knowledge far removed in appearance, intellectual substance, and teleological import from the synthesized floating computer information of the present. "The Tower" is an anachronism appealing to the alchemical past upon which the simulated future draws unconsciously. (Kristine Stiles)
