Asian museum collection “raided”

1 06 2011

From an e-mail announcement from Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco:

Stephanie Syjuco: RAIDERS

Stephanie Syjuco, from the series RAIDERS, at Catharine Clark Gallery. Opening Saturday, June 4, 2011.

Stephanie Syjuco has raided the collection of a prominent Asian arts and antiquities museum…figuratively, that is. For RAIDERS, her first solo exhibition at Catharine Clark Gallery, Syjuco has amassed a re-assembled collection of antique vessels by downloading publicly available images from their online database and printing them at the actual sizes listed on the site. Adhered to laser-cut wooden backings and gathered in groups, the prop-like objects at first glance appear to be a collection of valued cultural objects . . . ”  (more here)
