Ryan Trecartin’s work tests the boundaries of authorship and creative practice. Operating in So Solid Crew style, Trecartin designs a strategy and aesthetic around community dynamics. There’s Lizzie, Jesse, Kenny, Brian, Rhett, and Lindsay, and loads of others who’ve helped in their own way, each floating on and off the scene at will. Orchestrating a large group of artists, Trecartin offers a platform of uniting vision, garnering various levels of response from his collaborators. His works are often entirely conceived and made by other artists, while some work under close direction, and others complete projects like ‘tasks’ in a game-like simulation. Trecartin also makes things himself. Presenting a communal practice devoid of ego, Trecartin subtly builds a community vision, based on collective value, spontaneity, and mutual support. Mother encapsulates this harmonious spirit. Oversized, and slightly Charles-Ray-perverse, she towers as a matriarch of DIY splendour. Rake thin and papier mache lumpy, her perfection lies in Rhett LaRue’s best effort.
