David Lane makes sculptural assemblages that emulate institutional structures.
His work is overtly political, overlaying the prescribed visual language of the establishment whit signifiers derived from imagery associated with contemporary social issues. Lane appropriates institutional mode of presentation such as monumental figure sculpture and plinths or display cases in order to question the political motif from which such tendencies emerged. In doing so Lane debunks the museological and its underlying association with imperial aggression by commemorating our own wayward youth. As such Lane poses a complex set of questions about power, culture, history and crime.
Exhibited at Griffin Gallery in Young Gods in January 2014.
