  • Mise en Scene

    Excerpt from press release: For his installation … Zane uses video, drawing and sculpture to imitate a crime scene. The observer is left to build a narrative from viewing the scene, an activity that Zane views as parallel to the process of extracting meaning from art in a gallery or museum setting. In his own words: “It struck me awhile ago that there is this really apt analogy between an art exhibition and a crime scene. Viewers walk into a gallery and look at the evidence of an artists activity and try to piece together some sort of meaning or experience from the clues. So, basically what I have done is make an exhibition that is art as crime scene as art, where I mimic a crime scene and the different elements are art objects.”
