Pavel Büchler
Czech, b. 1952
Follow

Though he asserts that his artistic practice is about “making nothing happen,” Pavel Büchler produces installations, videos, sculptures, and works on paper that stimulate the mind through keen wit and conceptual rigor. With economy and elegance, Büchler repurposes a range of abandoned objects, including broken pencils, ashtrays, and paint chips, and obsolete technological devices like slide projectors and tape recorders, into visual puns through which he offers new ways of perceiving nature, culture, art, and the everyday. Büchler’s The Problem of God (2007) exemplifies the profound meaning he creates through the simplest interventions. The work consists of an old magnifying lens inserted into a worn book so that it magnifies one word, which, as Büchler’s title suggests, is the problem of God: “invisible.”
