Bruno Richard / Marc Fischer
"Exhalted Trash" Expo in Chicago, USA

Exhalted Trash - Patrick Miceli and
Marc Fischer/Bruno Richard

Exhibition: October 7 - December 9, 2006
Private Opening: Friday, October 6, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Where: Columbia College Chicago’s Center for Book & Paper Arts
1104 S. Wabash, 2nd floor
Chicago, USA

Paper is cheap, abundant and disposed of almost too easily. Patrick Miceli deals with fast food packaging one of the most pervasive uses of our culture’s use of this resource. As such, it is a relic left in the wake of our consumer society. Each of four installations use their own format or strategy to take recognizable materials and recontextualize them. Each scrap of paper can be seen as an archeological keepsake or fetish item.

Paris-based artist Bruno Richard has been publishing books and magazines of graphic drawings, text and photo-based work since the late 1970s. He and Marc Fischer, Chicago-based artist and member of the groups, Temporary Services and Mess Hall, have engaged in mail correspondence since 1998, resulting in a mountainous barrage of detritus that Fischer has received from Richard. Fischer’s archives of Richard’s multitudinous mailed packages have swelled beyond reason. The scraps of paper that provide the source material for Richard’s work, give the impression of a manic energy. This is, however, a controlled concern with one’s obsessions; an aesthetic contrivance that has not lost its authenticity.
