A short interview with Yane Calovski on Lapses through the Master Plan

Basak Senova: How do you define the notion of “lapse” in your work?

Yane Calovski: “Master Plan” plays with the idea of lapse in the sense of reverting history unconditionally back towards itself, to look at what has been celebrated in neglect. The various intervals of lapsed time between the past and the present in the process of understanding the gradual failure to preserve, maintain, and renew the legacy of one of the most experimental of times for architecture and urban planning in Macedonia but also in the Balkans, were an interesting denominator upon which one can navigate the discontinuity in logic of liner narration.

Obsession, Things,

“It is always changing. It has order. It doesn’t have a specific place.
Its boundaries are not fixed. It affects other things. It
may be accessible,
but go unnoticed. Part of it may also be
part of something else.
Some of it is familiar. Some of it is
strange. Knowing of it changes it.”

In 1970, when Robert Barry wrote this short conceptual text entitled Art Work, it was, as we know, not the first, but definitely a strong statement for a notion of art that not only defied the still widespread idea of the selfcontained, autonomous art work created by a single, original author, but, also directed the focus on its relationality.
