FOOSE DESIGNS: Tony Auth @ Lil' Gallery March, 2015. Curated by Fiona Sergeant. Photos by Tim Mahoney.
Q: Why is art made? why does anything exist?
A: Things exist because people/ forces make them happen/ bring them into existence.
"Selections from Tony Auth's most recent work, presented here as FOOSE DESIGNS, was brought about in a culture of custom hardware and aftermarket modification. It is a culture of fabricating one's desires and making it look nice. FOOSE DESIGNS is about active participation in the material world; its about drinking tap water from a Voss brand water bottle 'cos the bottle makes it taste better. There is pleasure to be had through the material world."
