“Guarded Future II” exhibition opens today at Downs & Ross in New York.
We have been generously lent the “Morte” set of 'photo-objects' from the private collection of Mr. Jerry Speyer.
This memorial set was created at the same juncture of time as the closing of the Gallery Nature Morte... the last time this work was exhibited was in 1989 at the 20th Sao Paulo Bienal. “Morte”, 1988
Glossy-surface marble-like photographs of crypts and monuments from Toronto's Mount Pleasant Cemetery embellish this ceremonial set of double-sided luggage, created ‘for that last trip’.
Color photographs laminated to Masonite, stainless steel hardware, leather handles, and identification tags. Set of 4
