WORK is pleased to host Tabarium, the first UK exhibition of Berlin-based Canadian artist Kristan Horton.
In Tabarium, and other work, Horton uses a variety of media to elaborate on the ways in which movement is represented, and the ways in which ‘things’ are generated and regenerated.
Since the 1990s, Horton’s preoccupations have included the consumption of texts and mass media, the representation of simultaneous and rotated scenes, and the visualisation of power generation. Well known for his photographic series Dr. Strangelove Dr. Strangelove, 2003—2006, for which he recreated scenes of the Kubrick film Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, 1964, using items from his studio, Horton presents a range of sculptural forms that challenge and question the boundaries of the real, the approximate and the virtual.
Ode on a Tab
O box shape! Fair weight! with beads
Of milky mend and typography overwrought,
With forest branches and the trodden weed;
Thou, mulched form, dost tease us out of thought
As doth eternity: Foul Flap!
When snack waste defines a generation, Tab shalt remain, in midst of other woe
Than ours, a friend to man, to whom thou say’st,
“Garbage is form, form garbage,— that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.”
