Kristan Horton
Dr. Strangelove Dr. Strangelove
25 April – 24 June 2007

A woman, dressed in a pantsuit resembling a disco ball, stands on a plinth. Spotlit, she is performing for an audience in a darkened environment.

Years in the making, Toronto artist Kristan Horton’s doubly legendary Dr. Strangelove Dr. Strangelove targets the AGYU from 25 April to 24 June 2007 with its explosive comic vision. With the obsessive meticulousness of the master himself, Horton has recreated each scene of Stanley Kubrick’s original Dr. Strangelove film with objects at hand in his studio, deflating what is exaggerated in Kubrick’s black comedy. The dialogue of obsessiveness is further emphasized by the fetishized presentation within the installation of the artist book that completes the project, which has been produced for Horton’s AGYU exhibition.
