"Drug of Choice: Handbags" GH HOVAGIMYAN Laser Print In the early 1990's Pop/Conceptual artist GH HOVAGIMYAN took a hard look at the intentions of print adve rtising. Designers like Gucci, Cartier and Fendi presented their goods with the reverence of a religious relic. In his "Drug of Choice" series, Hovagimyan, compares these objects of desire with other known addictive substances. In "Handbags" the product shot is accompanied by a questionnaire on needle use by addicts. (Please note: the large title does not appear on the artwork.)
"Faux Conceptual Art--Boxed Edition" GH HOVAGIMYAN By the mid-90's, artist GH HOVAGIMYAN had determined that Conceptual Art was entering into its "mannered " phase. So, he created a body of work that was a play on the highly intellectualized, self-consciousness of Conceptual Art--he called his work "Faux Conceptual Art". In this set--a-museum-show-in-a-box--Hovagimyan does a riff on many contemporary a rt icons: it includes a price list from a Joseph Kosuth show (conceptual artists were not supposed to create "commodity" art), a proposal for a built project called "Spiral Jaunty" (a playon the Smithson's landart "Spiral Jetty", "Fibonacci Series with Calculators", "Zero Sum with Glitz" and, a personal favorite, "Barbie Meets Richard Serra" in which Serra's work is presented as a house of cards. This boxed set of 12 boards is on museum quality rag paper.
