Home Entertainment 4 Metres

Evans, Chris
Since the late 1990s Chris Evans' practice has frequently engaged with institutional and corporate culture. Previous projects have featured collaborations with the managing directors of a group of retail and telecommunications companies (Radical Loyalty, 2003) as well as reciprocal portraits by judge and accused (The Rock and the Judge, 2005). Home Entertainment 2010 was originally commissioned by Marres Centre for Contemporary Culture in Maastricht for an exhibition entitled 'Depression'. The work is a functioning weathervane in black powder-coated steel. Following the wind direction the weathervane points away from the gallery and towards other buildings around it. Home Entertainment produces a witty and visually dramatic institutional critique that raises questions about the role of the museum or gallery in relation to mass culture.
