In this video, Not Vital and Grażyna Kulczyk discuss Vital's permanent sculpture “Tuor per Susch” (Tower for Susch), which was commissioned by Muzeum Susch (a private art museum in Susch, founded by Kulczyk). Standing 10 metres tall on a meadow above the Muzeum’s main building, the tower, with its meticulously carved out and polished surface, explores not only the boundaries of human skill and craftmanship, but also some of the fundamental tenets of architecture as a shelter from nature. Crafted from a single block of marble, the work’s arrival transforms the local landscape, with “Tuor per Susch” becoming the fourth tower in the village. The work is part of a seminal group of works by Vital that are subsumed under the term “Scarch”.
“It is all one. While I don’t like order, I do like harmony.”
