The lovely Karen Day writes, “Aliens might’ve constructed Egyptian pyramids, but the bigger question according to artist Agathe Snow is our relationship to such towering structures. She takes up the question in her current show, an homage to monuments at the Guggenheim Berlin dubbed All Access World. The Corsica-born, NYC-based Snow has already made a name for herself with artfully messy sculptural works and a penchant for interactive art, with this show exploring “a more democratic approach to monument ownership and distribution.” Filled with an array of mobile sculptures, large-scale wall collages, video works and more, the exhibit examines the identifying the factors that bind people to places.”
To go along with the show, Snow has teamed up with local sunglasses maker Mykita on a limited edition pair. The glasses represent Snow’s believe that omnipresent monuments be available as products. And so, here there are in the form of a limited edition run of 200. Available from Guggenheim Berlin.All Access World is open through March 30, 2011.
