Urs / Matt Borruso – Ellie Hunter

In Borges’ mythical realm Tlön, objects are created by being thought. Before this inception, these objects are almost duplicates of lost objects, similar to those whose migration across mediums generate the ideas and relationships revealed within the exhibition. Even stranger and more perfect than the other objects brought into being on Tlön is the ur – “a thing produced by suggestion, an object brought into being by hope,” or in this case, by seeing, via the specter of the artist.
