The Art Lending Library (ALL) is a mobile structure housing a diverse collection of artworks that can be enjoyed in your own home. Conceived and curated by Market Gallery. ALL is a major new artwork by Walker and Bromwich with contributions from over fifty artists.
Artwork in ALL: Couldn’t Understand Science, 2012, Paint, MDF and wax.
Self-contained and domestic in scale a white geometric form houses a decoratively painted marble disk. Vibrant blue, finger-pushed wax fills gaps cut in surfaces like faded lights. Straight cut-lines reveal an interior material, exposing the fake surface. Sci-Fi masquerades here. McLardy creates an uncomfortable relationship between the hand painted faux marble, stone set and its monitor-like mounting.
