Distinguished Canadian artist and UBC Professor Richard E. Prince considers the art of storytelling and the impact that reading and literature of all kinds have had on his artistic practice and life as a whole. The artist is interested in ideas gained from diverse origin stories and epic adventures and thus finds inspiration from The Kon-Tiki Expedition and The Odyssey among others. His sculptural installations reveal the belief that reading can be a method for transportation out of reality and into the words and tales being read. As I was reading…. with its unfixed ending, allows the viewer to experience the exhibition without irrevocability and to finish the sentence themselves, perhaps with a moment when they came to a realization or perhaps even an epiphany that occurred to them, as they were reading.
