Mark Dion at Tanya Bonakdar Gallery

28 February 2013 - 13 April '13

Tanya Bonakdar Gallery is very pleased to present a major upcoming exhibition of works on paper and new sculpture by Mark Dion.

Since the early 1990s, Dion has developed a remarkably dynamic and influential investigation of the visual representation of history, knowledge and the natural world. The artist's practice, which includes sculpture, installation, photography, and works on paper, along with writing, teaching and institutional collaborations, explores historical practices of organizing and studying the world, and their influences on contemporary perceptions about nature.

Marking the artist's sixth solo exhibition at the gallery, this show will present an extensive survey of over one hundred of Dion's drawings, prints and multiples within both upstairs gallery spaces. Works on paper have remained a critical part of his practice, and many of these were created concurrently with Dion's different projects and travels.

Environmental concerns, the effects of industry and human negligence on the natural habitat, and our relationship to guns and hunting are just some of the issues that Dion has addressed in depth over the past twenty years, and which seem more poignant now than ever.

Dion will simultaneously transform the ground floor gallery space into a fictional natural history museum, presenting six major new sculptures that share a particular focus on the ocean and sea life. Again, environmental crises, climate-related current events, and rising ocean levels provide compelling contexts and dramatic lenses through which to contemplate this important body of work.
