Mark Booth: 'Spanish Still Life or a Large List of Merged Animals'


  • Hyde Park Art Center 7200 South Cornell Avenue Chicago, IL, 60649 United States

A walk-in installation that seeks to provide a physical and psychological contemporary exploration of the Baroque painting Still Life with Game Fowl (1600/1603) by Juan Sánchez Cotán, currently in the collection of the San Diego Art Museum. The presentation will include drawings, digital projection, enamel paintings and a 10-channel audio component that, when combined, transfer an eerie still life painting into a multi-dimensional study of organizational strategies.
