Steve Carr - Smoke Bubbles 1-58

Publisher Perimeter Editions

ISBN 9780648262893

Idea Code 19252

Time is perhaps the central actor in Steve Carr's wider practice. Operating somewhere between photography, moving image, and a kind of deferred mode of performance, the New Zealand artist seems to slow time to a crawl as he interweaves actions, experiments, and unlikely cultural references to create transitory, richly aesthetic moments. ‘Smoke Bubbles 1–58’ comprises a series Carr produced during a residency in Japan in 2010. Taking the cover of Smokey Robinson’s 1973 debut LP as his inspiration, the images are both planetary and preposterous in their appearance – page after page of soap bubbles filled with cigarette smoke floating against an inky black backdrop.
