Impossible Installations: Massive Fake Art Exhibitions


Actual art installations are often surreal enough in real life, but this meta-art of David Michele‘s Pseudo-Documentary series takes the idea of gallery exhibitions to entirely new levels.


Addressing “issues of abstraction, conventions of documenting art, and the ideology of the gallery space,” these massive photographic prints show unlikely-but-possible uses of monumental-but-unreal art galleries – rooms filled with shards of glass or giant piles of salt and coal.


What is most fascinating about his work is that it arguably accomplishes the same effects of art installations with far greater economy – as a work itself on a wall rather than construction-intensive infill. Moreover, liberated from practicality and safety concerns, he can also take things a step further than most installation artists can even consider.
