Philosophical Archeology Space 2009–2019
Mixed Media, Variable Dimensions
McIntosh Gallery, London (ON)
Philosophical Archeology Space 2009–2019 shows a large-scale installation comprised of interdisciplinary mediums. The gallery is divided into two parts: an archive and its index. The archive, delimited in roughly one-third of the exhibition space, is not fully accessible. A perforated metal door blocks the physical entry to the archive, so that one can merely view and listen to (remotely behind the door) what is inside. The archive contains previous works of mine: some of these works are boxed, some are fully exhibited, and some are displayed in a manner in between. The index, situated in the main part of the gallery space, is a series of photo-litho prints (Japanese Washi paper sheets, 30 x 55 in. each) infused with collage work, sounds, and ephemera, forming a constellation rendered and conceived by archeological art-making.
