Not Vital IR

Not Vital (b. 1948 in Sent, Switzerland) is re- garded as a nomadic artist, whose anthropological thirst for knowledge makes him seemingly restlessly travel the world to process the impressions of different cultures in his sculptures. In fact, he is also closely linked to the place of his origin, the Swiss Engadin, to which he regularly returns. From this place and its traditions, his own memories of childhood and youth, he draws inspiration for his works, as well as images, forms and craft techniques of foreign cultures. Vital’s work is formally distinguished by its striking clarity and precision, and at the same time conveys a mysterious timelessness through its not clearly nameable, archaic-looking iconography. The Museum der Moderne Salzburg presents a selection of sculptures with corresponding drawings by the artist.
