Vesko Gösel’s artworks are influenced structurally by Concrete Art and also formally by Arte Povera as he similarly reuses discarded materials for new, unforeseen purposes.
The history of materials as well as the function of technical equipment and tools are of particular interest to him, specifically in relation to the historical and social dimensions of photography.
His works atomize objects into components in order to reassemble them in a new context of time and space. These transformations question our everyday, rote use of things, but unlike their intended purposes, the reformed objects are reluctant to be categorized – set free from logical use.
In Gösel’s work, the shape of each work evolves from a presumption of what a thing once was or could have been. Thus their essence, their language of form and material continues to relate to the actual historical use and function. form follows [it’s historical] function.
