Carson Davis Brown January 8 — March 5, 2016

Mass

Mass is a site-specific installation project about creating visual disruptions in places of mass (to date: big-box stores, super-centers, etcetera.). At an intersection between Street Art and Land Art, installations are made without permission, using found materials within the retail landscape. The installations are made, photographed, then left on site to be experienced by bystanders and ultimately, dissembled by staff at the location. The photographs made of the installations are also exhibited initially in a similar consumer landscape. The images are printed, framed then exhibited in these big-box stores, all without permission.

Carson Davis Brown  (b. 1985, Grand Rapids, MI, USA) is a visual artist working in photography and film. His background ranges from commercial design and photography to documentary and film. Brown often marries the functional to the abstract. His work examines the narratives of larger social structures by dismantling the landscape those narratives exist in and re-assembling it. This contextual re-imagination forces the observer to become hyper-aware of his/her environment. 

Brown had his first solo show, at the 2015 Month of Photography LA, Building Bridges Art Exchange, Santa Monica, CA. He has shown with Radical Color, Humble Arts Foundation, Online exhibition in 2015, Cabin-Time: Wilderness, Crafthaus, Grand Rapids, MI in 2013, as well as receiving a Cabin-Time Roaming Residency in 2012. He was awarded the “Moving Image Photographer of the Year,” International Photography Awards/Lucie Foundation, NYC, in 2013.
