Mark Hamilton

September 14 – October 28, 2006

Curated by Christian Rattemeyer
Project Space 2
Opening Reception: September 14, 6 - 8 pm

Mark Hamilton’s interest to understand the roles of (visual) objects in the aesthetic economies of culture – as markers of value, but also as markers of the borders between the inside and the outside of culture – is at the core of his practice. For Echoplex, Hamilton strategically employs a minimal range of signs to maximum effect by drawing on carefully selected stock images and formal solutions of withdrawal, critique, and discontent.
