Krista Buecking Magenta Magazine April 3, 2013 By Ellyn Walker WE THING, a solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based Canadian Krista Buecking, points to the intangibility of the neoliberal ideal. Playing with the linguistic development of the word ‘thing’, the exhibition’s title reminds us of the public body intrinsically located within any object, matter or circumstance. Similarly, examining prevalent social and economic systems within a critical lens, Buecking’s multifaceted installation undersc... [more]

FrameWork 2/13:3 Brian Groombridge on Simple Present Future Anterior Twenty years ago I was lucky enough to have Susan ask me to be part of her new gallery.  When we talked about exhibiting, most times I would not have a particular idea of what I wanted to present.  If I did put shape to an idea, by the time the show happened, it bore little resemblance to the initial idea. Something else always seemed to happen along the way. Susan allowing that complete freedom to do anything was remarkably...

FrameWork 2/13:2 Liz Magor on Simple Present Future Anterior I’m sure that all the artists who work with Susan have experienced her ability to provide unusual support for projects and passions. She’s concierge-like in her arrangements for securing funding, making donations or finding a seat sale.  She’s paralegal in pursuing insurance claims, getting into or out of contracts, and checking the fine print. I have learned to value her input on both professional and personal matters and absolutely... [more]

FrameWork 2/13:1 Sandra Meigs on Simple Present Future Anterior A Powder of Feelings Charles S. Peirce writes: “Time consists in a regularity in the relations of interacting feelings. Like begins to produce like. Then even pairs of unlike feelings begin to have similarity and then these begin to generalize… All this goes on in ways I cannot detail until the feelings are so bound together that a passable approximation to a real time is established. Unrelated feelings are like a powder of matter, p... [more]

FrameWork 3/13:3 Didier Courbot on Simple Present Future Anterior A few years ago I was preparing a show at Susan’s gallery. During the week of the installation I was invited for dinner at the French consulate in Toronto. While Susan drove me to the consulate that evening I started to talk about the fact that I was badly dressed to meet diplomats and government officials - I was in dirty working clothes that I had been wearing during the set up. As usual, Susan found the right words: "Didier,... [more]

FrameWork 3/13:2 Patrick Howlett on Simple Present Future Anterior I made two works for Simple Present Future Anterior. One is called you can always come back (but you can't come back all the way). The title comes from the last verse of a song by Bob Dylan called Mississippi.  It’s a looking back-travel song, with a litany of mistakes and troublesome observations balanced with a defiant and brazen will to press on. Paradox is built into each verse: Well my ship’s been split to splinters and... [more]

FrameWork 3/13:1 Ian Carr-Harris on Simple Present Future Anterior Ten Sentences on Susan Hobbs: courtesy of Sol Lewitt Conceptual artists are mystics rather than rationalists. They leap to conclusions that logic cannot reach. Irrational judgements lead to new experience. When words such as painting and sculpture are used, they connote a whole tradition and imply a consequent acceptance of this tradition, thus placing limitations on the artist who would be reluctant to make art that goes...

Good jokes depend on a kind of compression.  Things are left out in such a way that produce an explosion of associations.  There is a form of pressure, kPa, that exists inside all of us that is released when provoked by the forces interacting between various levels condensed in a joke.  The best jokes are economical. In her installation WE THING, Krista Buecking borrows the comedic device of the light bulb joke.  The signature punch line almost always involves targeting certain traits of a defined g... [more]
