"Horse & Sparrow"
Marilou Lemmens and Richard Ibghy "Horse & Sparrow," installation.
MARILOU LEMMENS AND RICHARD IBGHY
Horse & Sparrow, Spring, 2010, The New Gallery, Calgary
The collaborative installation work of Marilou Lemmens and Richard Ibghy tackles one of the most current and complex ideas of the modern socio-political sphere. For Horse & Sparrow, installed in Calgary’s The New Gallery in the Spring, the concept was sparked by the free market economic theories of John Kenneth Galbraith, and traces the development of international economic policy, and the ways that Galbraith’s theories on capitalism, and their consequences have leaked into our everyday lives. This show fits well with Ibghy and Lemmens’ history of creating work that challenges mass deceptions, and the language surrounding it.
