"Dog Days," Tom Burr's installation of new sculptural works (all 2002), was stocked with butch objects like Black Lab (as in Labrador retriever). A broad wooden cabinet standing well over head height, Black Lab almost blocked one's path into the gallery. kunstverein-bs.de

Conceptually oriented artists tend to be either obsessed or dismissive towards the objects they use. In most cases somebody else produces the work for them using standard industrial materials. The function of these objects is often descriptive, illustrating of a set of ideas expressed more accurately by textual means. The ideological value of the present or absent texts is mainly to justify the uninteresting objects in their expository function which are as quickly to be interchangeable as produced.
