Dave McKenzi is a conceptual artist working in performance, photography, and video. He explores the presentation of the self and the physical and time-based presence of the body. Placing his work within the framework of popular culture, he reflects on the selection and the recognition of beauty by institutions and individuals. Creating a contrast between relevance and obsolescence, as well as belief and desire, McKenzi brings attention to the world of information and its means of delivery; by attempting to slow down time, he examines the relevance of what is part of the present. His work appeared in The Kitchen group exhibition JUST KICK IT TILL IT BREAKS in 2007.
