Highest Form of Flattery
Apr 6 – Apr 31, 2019
Opening ReceptionSaturday, April 6, 2019
Borne’s reincarnations of historic works of art give both homage and perversion to the original by bringing them back to life. The pieces and artists represent different facets of his interests in decentralizing and de-commercializing the experience of art.
Featuring reincarnated versions of work by iconic artists like Beuys and Marioni, Borne’s newest work invites the viewer to rethink and re-experience the past in a display neither nostalgic nore genuine. As a photocopy of an original gets distorted with each copy, this exhibition is meant to celebrate that distortion.
