Abstract

An article exploring what artists do when working with existing material can be a more symbiotic association, more akin to mutualism. I believe that some artists are able to potently change, add or reconfigure something as a primary material or subject (that already exists in the world) so that it not only adds to our experience, potential and knowledge of the original object, but also goes beyond this to give back as much as it/they take. Importantly there is a dual way of seeing the artworks where the original object is still there, but the addition by the contemporary artist is simultaneously also present. It features focused readings of the work of Douglas Gordon, Nick Crowe, Gerard Williams and the author's artworks.
