Joshua Barndt’s Atrophic Existence

by Ken HarmanPosted on

Now on view at Show and Tell Gallery in Toronto is “Atrophic Existence”, a look into both man and nature’s relationship with urban decay. While the exhibit features favorites Kevin Cyr, Jeff Gillette, and Alex Lukas, the show stopper seems to be Joshua Barndt‘s installation, “The World is a Mountain and Everything Gets Buried”. Much like the more painterly pieces from Atrophic, Barndt’s work serves as a dialogue between man made goods and an encroaching/receding natural world. The clincher you ask? Barndt has used every single one of his personal possessions to create the piece. The show closes January 10th (much to Barndt’s relief and dismay we’re sure) so check it out.
