Hugh Scott-Douglas “A Broken Mule”
This event has ended.
While not well known in Japan, the titular mule is a hybrid breed of animal born from a male donkey and a female horse. It lacks the standing and trade value of the horse, but comes with the donkey’s economy and utilitarian value. In this exhibition, Hugh Scott-Douglas poses the question of what forms result and what new values are born when a mule is “broken,” i.e., robbed of its original value as an optimal tool for productive labor. This theme is explored through two bodies of work, which both feature combinations— or, cross breeding, of different mediums and processes.
