Christopher Kulendran Thomas
6 September 2013 - 12 October 2013
Opening Reception 6 September 2013 7pm
UK-based artist Christopher Kulendran Thomas takes as materials the whole system by which art is distributed, purchasing existing artworks from the margins of international art power and reconfiguring them for worldwide circulation. Through this evisceration of contemporary art’s globalising mission, cultural exchange is explicitly perverted by the underlying colonial trading patterns that it usually masks. Counter-manipulating imperial interdependencies of art and war, art is taken to be ecologically contingent within its networked reality.
