Thomas Hirschhorn’s exhibition at Barbara Gladstone, New York, is called “Cavemanman.” I have to admit that at first I got into the experience of the total environment that he created (he must have gone through thousands of rolls of packing tape). I had heard so much about this artist, had never seen anything he had done in person, was definitely seduced by it… Then, a friend raised a very good question - what do the books of theory taped up everywhere have to do with it? If someone smarter than me and my friend can let me know, I would appreciate it.
