~URBAN FLUX MINIATURES: JENNIFER + KEVIN McCOY, TIM PORTLOCK
URBAN FLUX – ALSO HIT . . . THE SWEET NANO SPOT.
curators ELLIE CLARK and LEIGH SILVER . . titled their group exhibit: URBAN FLUX, interestingly it also included a small imaginary perhaps .. . futuristic, city headquarters as a ‘replica miniature’, and presented a larger scale photo-based work, a downtrodden urban city portrait – that was characterized by its attention to ‘minute’ . . detail.
JENNIFER & KEVIN McCOY, ‘Old Headquarters’, 2012. mixed media sculpture, LED screen, media player, electronics, coming it at a small, even for a miniature !! scale of: 12 x 12 x 10 in.
an imaginary ‘replica’ . . now that’s a interesting thought.
a mini-me, not !!
maybe devolving back into farmland – in a 100 years ?
even though the piece itself was in the ‘larger’ size format, re: dimensions (72 x 54 in.) . .
it was still a ‘mini’ slice of urban abandoned reality / decay. and it depended on attention to ‘minute’ details – to get its point across.
