Hans-Ulrich Obrist – Hear Us
Featuring Bill Burns
Hans Ulrich Obrist Hear Us surveys the recent work of internationally recognised artist Bill Burns. From illustrations to sculpture, installation and photography, these multimedia works marry Burns‘ life-long fascination with nature – his artistic career arguably born of early experiments in documenting the wildlife around him – and a witty critique of the contemporary art world, its systems and the powers that govern it.
A humorous and iconic autobiographical text from Burns himself – a first person account that tells the story of the artist through a series of formative episodes in his life and career – supports his illustrated art works.
Further contextual essays are provided by Jennifer Matotek, the Director/Curator of the Dunlop Art Gallery, and Stuart Reid, Director and Curator of Rodman Hall Art Centre; Havana-based art critic and curator Dannys Montes de Oca Moreda; Dan Adler, author and associate professor of modern and contemporary art at York University in Toronto; and Berlin-based writer Jennifer Allen.
