Alexandre Singh, “The School for Objects Criticized” at Sprüth Magers

Whether in two, three, or four dimensions, Alexandre Singh’s work explores the history of philosophy, science, and cultural production through figures as varied as Aristophanes, Molière, and Woody Allen.

Singh’s theatrical light and sound installation “The School for Objects Criticized” exchanges the traditional roles of artwork and visitor by placing on pedestals a group of talking objects, who discuss art, culture, technology, and life and death. Like in Molière’s 1663 play “The School for Wives Criticized,” Singh’s characters begin a mise-en-abyme discussion. But here the topic is the merits or demerits of an exhibition by the artist Alexandre Singh, which is similar to the installation on display.
