Your Assumption is Correct
July 19, 2010 – August 30, 2010

Lovers Lane Studios at ::: Soup ::: Magoo is proud to present “Your Assumption is Correct” a process-driven installation by Rod Mandel, curated by Mab MacMoragh. Mandel is an Artist and Founder of the Invisible Museum of Post Contemporary Art.

Influenced by the writings of Jorge Luis Borges, Mandel’s work often takes the form of ‘historical fiction’, offering the viewer the freedom to decide which aspects, if any, they believe. Part of Mandel’s fascination with History stems from a contextual idea that history does not exist. “Your Assumption is Correct” is a metaphor for the act of reflecting on an idea. The piece is a process-based examination of recent poignant events in American Culture. The scene, an offshore oil rig transformed into a contemporary art museum, alluding to the indecipherable line between fact and fiction, is the predetermined context. (Text by Rod Mandel)
