Onomatopee, 21,5 x 15 cm, 136
The artist Jim Ricks has developed the method of synchro-materialism – history must be re-worked and re-imagined. Ricks will use the quotidian fragments of capitalism and empire in the last century to weave a new narrative that undercuts and supersedes the prevailing mainstream ones. Subjective slices of everyday life and history are collected and, depending on scarcity, re-created. They will be displayed according to an intuitive synchronicity based on politics, aesthetics, history, and philosophy.
