"Mitch Robertson's '5,6,7: Economies of Good & Evil' speaks to the state of contemporary consumerism and religion in North America. The exhibition poses compelling questions about the nature of belief and values in modern living. [...] As in previous work, Robertson confronts us with a perspective that leads us through an examination of our lifelong experience 9in this case religion), People congregate to share experiences, and the church has often beenboth that place of congregation and a beacon in its community. Today, it c ontinues to play an important role in our society but, while remaining as pervasive as it was before, it manifests itself differently. Robertson investigates institutions and questions practices, be they the church or tourism, since he is deeply interested in the search for authentic experience. He makes what he calls 'family friendly conceptualism' -- given that concepts of his work are still more important to him than the execution of it." - from both forewords. Very good. 30.00
