Bridle, Gary Date
2013 See full details
This evolving, expanding collection of ready-mades and assisted ready-mades encompasses photography, sculpture and time-based video, creating an undisclosed, imagined site where the artist, and others, can seek seclusion from consumer-driven human behaviour in an age of late capitalism and gain inspiration from the ‘aesthetic spirit’ that appears in visions. To this end, the collection's taxonomy is developed within ideas of place, travel, the fable and mythology.
Installed into a corner as the artist intended, Ferrule 5’s composite image plays out the literal concept of the Retreat, allowing a view from inside perhaps into an indeterminate kind of oasis.
