Simon Starling

Simon Starling Work from his oeuvre. “Humor is little discussed in art criticism, though funny art abounds. Many of Simon Starling’s projects have been comic—slapstick and harebrained, funny ha-ha and funny peculiar—at the same time that they have been unimpeachably erudite.

Alex Da Corte

Alex Da Corte Work from his oeuvre. “Mr. Da Corte’s work revisits the objects and fascinations we’ve left behind by using low-cost items the way Jim Hodges uses bodily fluids.

Josue Rauscher

Josue Rauscher Work from his oeuvre. “I have a recurring attraction to architecture, furniture exhibition, the objects may be poor as sculptures involuntary. With the materials recovered or derived from the world of DIY, I create sculptures low-tech resulting from a chain of connections formal and simple gestures. They are usually accompanied by images that […]
