License Plate Shed, 2009 - 10
Part endurance art, part polemic, part experiment, ‘License Plate Shed’ is a yearlong sojourn in a remote mountain town. Hirsch E.P. Rothko, an anagram of Christopher K. Ho, disengaged from critical discourse, and lived and worked in a 717-square foot shed covered in license plates, thereby actualizing a romantic trope. The piece is one of three components of the 2010 solo exhibition ‘Regional Painting’ at Winkleman Gallery. The other two are a set of paintings made during the year and a pocket paperback memoir.
