THE INVISIBLE DOG WELCOMES IAN TRASK
ARTIST IN RESIDENCY
In October 2009, Ian Trask has been part of the Recession Art Show, No Money No Problem (October 3rd-10th).
Invited by Lucien Zayan, Ian starts a residence within The Invisible Dog.
During The Ant exhibition. Ian Trask, artist in residency at The Invisible Dog, present his transformative cardboard installation The Worm which is a new species of detritivore with a voracious appetite and a talent for consuming uban waste.
Ian Trask is a sculptor who explores the inherent aesthetics of material waste. He collects discarded, manufactured goods, sparing them from disposal or recycling programs, in order to invent and impose his own process of decomposition. As a decomposer, he breaks down society’s refuse into smaller composite parts and rearranges them into newer, larger and more interesting forms. By finding creative sustenance in urban detritus, he believes that he imbues undervalued material with an uncommon value, thereby presenting the processes of disposal and decomposition as fascinating rather than revolting.
