Self-Titled (in the Bakery)
Alex Farrar (Leeds, 1986) shows in Self-Titled four works from the past four years. Self-Titled refers to the debut albums of well-known rock bands who with their band as album title (Led Zeppelin - 'Led Zeppelin') published their best material so far - and became a big success. Farrar's works point the visitors subtly to their own viewing habits. On the floor is a spotless white carpet which during the exhibition will make the tracks of visitors and gallery assistants visible. On the wall hangs a life-size photograph of an official of the Olympics giving the start signal. The signal announces a new beginning, but of what? On the other wall is a homemade suit, worn by Farrar at openings as representation of the professional artist. Sometimes a cardboard box floats by, without being bothered by visitors, time and space. Without borders.
