David K. Ross$19.95
Publication of the first solo exhibition of the Montreal artist whose photographs offer an inspired reflection on the packing and storage of artworks. This new series documents a crucial step in museography, while revisiting one of the great moments in contemporary art history. The project revolves around a particular object that is threatened with obsolescence: the traditional packing crate, individually painted a specific colour “attached” to a specific museum. Some ten empty crates from nearly as many institutions are thus documented in detail and become the subject of high-resolution colour images. The quality of the surfaces reproduced and their large size reveals pictorial gestures that recall the major issues involved in abstract painting, be it abstract expressionism, colour field painting or monochromatic abstraction. David K. Ross was featured in the 2008 Québec Triennial.
