Untitled - David Horvitz

From April 27 to May 22, 2016

Untitled by David Horvitz is a simple conceptual work with a strong and volative potential. Untitled is made just of a drawing and a textual instruction that the public is supposed to follow to finalize the artwork. The call to point the arrow to the sky changes the usual modality of interaction, shifting it from what one visualizes on the screen to the screen itself and the space surrounding it. In this way Horvitz challenges the relationship between the audience and the Link Cabinet exhibition space, as well as inviting us to redisgn and reimagine the way we usually interact with our digital devices.

David Horvitz is an artist whose work shifts seamlessly. Shifts that occur when natural phenomena adopts a nomadic personality, finding loopholes and alternative logics within them. He has in the past decade created a body of work that spans, weather, gastronomy, travel, measurement, and public space. He deliberately counters patterns derived from professionalization and efficiency. Horvitz, half-Japanese, by the ocean, his head buried in his hands, gathers and disperses through airport lost and found services. Pebbles often possess a naturally frosted finish. His works have been presented at Blum & Poe (Los Angeles), MoMA (New York), the New Museum (New York) and Art Metropole (Toronto).
