Brad Downey — Reverse Culture Shock — 埃因霍溫 荷蘭 — 2 MAR - 29 APR 2018

MU, Torenallee 40-06

Sometimes poetry is not enough, and sometimes is now. Artist Brad Downey, notorious for his subversive pranks and minimalist interventions in public space, shifts his focus from the street to the state. Instead of pairing a shopping cart to a bicycle, he places a model of Tatlin’s Tower on top of a tank in reference to the Russian invasion of the Ukraine. He targets a barrier at the US-Mexican border rather than a garden fence, and graffiti buffs are replaced by censored images deemed indecent by the National Media Council of the United Arab Emirates.
