His withholding of the often intricate backstory that informs each of his works leaves the viewer with three choices… one is to be maddened by the tease. Another is to consult the catalogue, which is replete with brainy curatorial essays… Still a third is to relax and enjoy the mute and striking elegance of an installation that amounts to an exhibition about exhibiting.
