The Wattis Institute is pleased to announce a new edition on behalf of Kris Martin's Spring 2011 Capp Street residency. Martin's conceptual practice centers on the fragility of the human condition; his frequent use of the readymade — from boulders to texts by Dostoyevsky to common nails — alludes to the poignancy inherent in everything that surrounds us. This particular piece continues his exploration of temporality and alludes to the contradictory ideas of transparency and weight, endurance and permeability.
