We photographed all the artworks exhibited at ARK – a major collaborative exhibition curated by Gallery Pangolin and held at Chester Cathedral – for its supporting catalogue. Seen here is ‘Stubbs (Absorbed)’ by American-South Korean artist Michael Joo.
‘Stubbs (Absorbed) (2009), is based on George Stubbs’ strangely incongruous painting of a zebra within an English countryside setting (1762-63). For Joo, this particular animal – here presented with its skin flayed according to the pattern of its black stripes – acts as a symbol of binary opposites and mistaken identity.’
