...but I know what I like...

Dukes of Hazzard meet the Unabomber1
Image Hosted by

"For his third solo show at RARE, Chris Larson has created a life-size replica of the General Lee (of Dukes of Hazzard television fame) crashing into a representation of the Unabomber's wooden shack. The confluence of these cultural icons2 serves as a metaphor for the duality inherent in taking into one's own hands the righteousness of the law. "3

For his fourth solo show at RARE, Chris Larson will create a life-sized replica of an artist snickering into his tea cozy.
