The White Horse Dialogues
These mechanically produced, photographic images embody the form of real horses, point to our experience and perception of real horses, and perhaps recall the paintings of Delacroix or Gericault. But when is a horse not a horse?
The title for this series is taken from The White Horse Dialogues, a famous paradox in Chinese philosophy written by a member of the “School of Names”. It is a discussion of identity, of naming, and the limits and boundaries of identity – sometimes with absurd conclusions.
