Marc Courtemanche, Axe 2008
A routine glance at a work of art sometimes leads to a double take—a delayed reaction to a surprising detail after the initial failure to notice anything unusual. Selected from the permanent collection, the works in Double Take either are ‘assisted readymades’ (modified found objects) or, as ‘replicas,’ they resemble assisted readymades. The second or third glance generally prompts second thoughts.
In combination, the painting/assemblage by Gerald Ferguson and sculptural objects by Marc Courtemanche and Kelly Mark bring art objects into problematic relationships with concepts of authenticity, categories of taste, and hierarchies of practice.
