Lonnie Holley at Atlanta Contemporary


Our continual and insistent desire for assemblage, Bruce Conner retrospective or Yuji Agematsu, 2007's unmonumental resurgence, and our weird collective desire for our own detritus repackaged. Why we desire our ruins? proffered answers by psychoanalysts as well as Nazis. Why aesthetic pleasure in our death, the flotsam of our cultural wreckage netted, the gore of culture. The inherent violence in this, to which Holley seems attuned.
