Darren Bader’s artwork considers shifting notions of the art object, its contexts and production. “There’s this quantity/entity that people consider to be art, and my wish to [make] art involves trying to figure out the locus of this quantity/entity,” Bader has said. For his series “and/with,” the artist juxtaposes disparate objects and gives the works titles such as sugar and/with axe or kangaroo and/with lobster. Although laced with humor, Bader's works are serious attempts to think through the processes of how a sculpture comes into being, and the contexts in which an object becomes art.
