Zilberman is proud to announce the representation of Yane Calovski.

Yane Calovski’s artistic practice is research-based and interdisciplinary. He examines the processes of interconnecting existing, inconclusive modernist narratives and how these, as evocations, can stimulate a new critical imagination. The nonlinearity of collective memory informs his practice. Visually, he articulates his work both abstractly and figuratively. His methodology includes writing, drawing, building, and video-documenting, leading to installations that concern a site’s spatial and contextual specificity, the material, and the conceptual elasticity of the form. Ultimately, his works reassemble archives, questioning how history is practiced, produced, presented, and consumed.

Yane Calovski graduated from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (1996) and Bennington College (1997). He participated in the studio programs in CCA Kitakyushu, Japan (1999–2000) and Jan van Eyck Academie, Netherlands (2002–04). In 2004, he co-founded the Press to Exit Project Space, a platform dedicated to artistic research and curatorial practices, with Hristina Ivanoska. Calovski has had solo exhibitions at Galerie Blanche – association La Première Rue, Briey (2022), Kunsthalle Kohta, Helsinki (2020); Museum of Contemporary Art, Skopje (2011); Tate Britain, London (2010); European Kunsthalle, Cologne (2009), and the BAC-Baltic Art Center, Visby (2004), among others. Calovski represented Macedonia at the 56th Venice Biennale with Hristina Ivanoska (2015). They exhibited collaboratively at the Art Encounters Foundation (2022), Tobacna001-MGML, Ljubljana (2019), Museum of Contemporary Art Skopje (2018), and Museum of Contemporary Art Zagreb (2017), and Kunsthalle Baden-Baden (2014), among others. They received the Foundation for Arts Initiatives Grant (2021) and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant (2018). For his practice, he has also received fellowships and residencies at IASPIS, Stockholm (2018), Museums Quartier Vienna (2014), Allianz Kulturstiftung Fellowship Program, Berlin (2004), and the Pew Fellowship in the Arts (2001), to name a few.
