Chris Larson – Deep North

The multimedia works of Chris Larson are on view at Magnus Müller. “Deep North” accommodates sculpture, photography, drawings and video all produced with this frozen house at the point of focus.

The house itself is a work of art that visitors can experience through many media in the warm confines of the gallery space. The photographs of the frozen dwelling show a place that was abandoned in a hurry, the former inhabitants left most of their treasured items behind. The feeling is that the space has been frozen in time.

At the center of the home is a large untitled sculpture that has been transported to the gallery for the exhibit. “Deep North” the video shows this wooden machine in use by three neutrally clothed women. They appear to be operating the sculpture in order to manipulate cylinders of ice from one end of the house to the other. No object or action in “Deep North” is left to chance while the motives and desires of this exhibit remain delightfully ambiguous.
