Krowswork Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition What If? In the Days When the Tiger Smoked, a collaboration between veteran video artists Torsten Zenas Burns and Darrin Martin. The exhibition includes four videos and accompanying prints and photographs and is the culmination of an ongoing project which began in Busan, South Korea in 2006. The first part of the title - "What If?" - sets the tone for both the scientific and speculative nature of the artists' point of departure. The second part - "In the Days When the Tiger Smoked" - is the Korean equivalent of "Once Upon a Time," suggesting an event set in a mythical time. This juxtaposition of the exciting, unknown possibilities of "future" with the playful, whimsy of a fictional "past" provides a perfect capsule for this uniquely complex narrative of the imaginative present.
