Richard Haley

The video works presented were originally 4 distinct works, but they have gained new life as they have been tangled together for this exhibition. Together they illustrate real life forces exerting themselves on fakes, clumsy surrogates, pitiful stand-ins for actual things. In exposing them to real life forces they begin to be themselves, not what they are modeled after. Their own intrinsic thingness becomes readily apparent. They start to destabilize notions of a copy or modeled after. But a tension arises, while they become their own entity, it is tied to their pathetic attempt of what they tried to emulate in the first place.
