CLOSKY, Claude; CRAWFORD, Holly
Barking and Meowing
Using site-specific installations, drawings, collages, videos, and websites, Claude Closky is known for his commentary on the spectacle of capitalist consumerism. Immediately recognisable for its political conscience and straightforward formal vocabulary, his work elicits debate, analysis of artistic production, communication, and issues of representation. This publication, appearing in conjunction with an exhibition at AC Institute in New York, extensively examines Closky’s practice and artworks, wherein art theorist and artist Holly Crawford surveys the artist’s oeuvre, from its anonymous beginnings in the streets of Paris and New York to his recent installations. Or so they say.
