Alan Kane - Trove & Just Photography
Ancient & Modern, London presents two adjoining exhibitions sharing the medium of
photography at Martos Gallery during March 2011.
Alan Kane: Trove
The British artist Alan Kane described himself recently as ‘a conceptual artist working
in the field of still life, the nude and landscape’. His diverse practice often takes cues
from forms of display familiar to us. From yard sales, village halls and the living room,
Kane coalesces around joining the discovery of art experiences to the production and
presentation of them. Here Kane presents two new installations: Jehu’s (2010), a sitespecific
window installation facing 29th Street, which emanates from the more
pastoral origins of a South Wales post office; and Disarrays, a sculpture comprised of
six-hundred C-type photographs.
Just Photography brings together a cross-generational gathering of artists from Europe
for whom photography exists either as dominant practice or a more casual endeavour.
Presenting a range of works from the 1980s to the present day, through their various
formal, conceptual or performative experiments, their photographs seem historically
to be ambiguously located in time.
