Volta6 BaselDate: 16th June 2010
For Volta 6, David will show 1:25, a modular, miniature artwork suggesting children’s toys like Brio, Lego and Meccano. The work can be endlessly built and rebuilt to create defensive barriers across coffee tables or gallery floors.
David's work is being presented at Volta by Danielle Arnaud contemporary art.
The work references Hill33, a massive earthwork, due to begin construction in the Forest of Dean, UK, in the summer of 2010, a work that will recycle two thousand tons of landfill (originally taken from the Forest as the result of open cast mining) to produce a sculpture of grandiose proportions and employing indigenous waste and the construction materials of conflict.
