specific object / david platzker

Specific Object/David Platzker “is an attempt to isolate distinct works of value- historically, monetarily and / or personally valuable- and show them in an isolated context without the artifice of visual confusion or clutter in hopes of allowing these works, or objects, their own place, space and time.” The current project, Peter Downsbrough : The Published Books, features “a complete collection of the artists’ books… bracketed by a newly editioned set of bookends; a wall work; and additional individual titles by the artist.”
