Kasper Kovitz crafts objects in ways that at first glance seem calculated to undermine both our notion of what an artwork is supposed to be as well as why the landscape, or whatever other icon he may employ, is worth taking seriously. It would be easy enough to focus on the novel aspects of the objects themselves as humorous parodies of more traditional kinds of art. Curiously, the apparent irony is only a shroud of the much more disturbing question as to the relevance of the culture that imbues the icons with meaning and perpetuates the art-making practices that have brought them into existence. -
