I am immortal and alive
“I am immortal and alive”, Gil J Wolman
The work of Gil J Wolman insistently confirms the close relation between the avant-garde movements of the second half of the twentieth century and the artistic stances that shattered the received order of the fine arts, passed down through the nineteenth century. Yet everything indicates that Wolman’s passage through history was excessively discreet, as though he were an illegal immigrant of avant-garde art, a figure always present but never identified, a stowaway who emerged at the dawn of a century that he reached thanks to being immortal and always alive.
