RECONSTRUCTION, BRUCE MONTCOMBROUX

Sep 4 - Dec 18, 2009
Curated by Kent Archer

Reconstruction explores the possible interpretations of invention and fabrication. Bruce Montcombroux looks at how ideas can be materialized into tangible objects, while simultaneously evoking more ephemeral notions of fiction or deception.

Reconstruction sources news stories, current events, conflicts and the flux of relationships. The narrative potential is about second-hand information, memory fragments, or types of mnemonics whose original reference has been lost or obscured. In a do-it-yourself, home-built version of high technology, the mechanical and the body are pushed together in an uneasy relationship. In this sense, Reconstruction deals with multiplicity and how we rationalize or create narratives to help understand our position within an ideologically and technologically complex world.
