Ken Little: It's Not Nine One One
San Antonio, TX
May 13–September 19, 2010The second artist to be featured in Artpace's year-long WindowWorks tribute to past residents, Ken Little's (IAIR 95.4) sculptures explore the symbolic connotations of varying and somewhat unorthodox materials. Items of taxidermy modeled by leather apparel, articles of clothing tailored from dollar bills, a house walled by the pages of a bible…his work questions the identity of the subject by replacing its literal surface with a symbolic one. As he assembles these objects, the symbolic meanings clash with each other and with the whole of the sculpture, setting into motion a cycle of reinvention that attacks the viewer with a multitude of possible meanings. Little's guiding aesthetic is an act of constant questioning, one that redefines his sculptures in their entirety, from the smallest individual object to the very essence of their subject.
