Detached Conceptualism







Erik Wysocan's "Untitled (Frozen Moment)" brings to mind two artists: Marcel Duchamp and Michael Craig-Martin. Both artists, the latter inspired by the former, employed detached conceptualism, minimal construction, and the readymade as techniques to interrogate the experience of art. Michael Craig-Martin's "Oak tree" and Marcel Duchamp's "Air de Paris" taken together seem to be precursors to Wysocan's "Untitled (Frozen Moment)".
