Allan McCollum (1944 - ) is a photographer and sculptor who has worked, since the early 1980s, to confront the "nightmare of mass production." Dubbed an "assembly line Savant" by Roberta Smith, McCollum plays with the obliteration of identity or individuality through iteration. McCollum's work subverts the singularity of the art object or the trace by creating it in mass, casting multiples of a dinosaur footprint or turning his own designs into cookie-cutters and stamps. McCollum has participated in two group exhibitions at The Kitchen, An Anticipated Ruin in 1985 and Arts + Leisure in 1986.
