Medium: Giclee prints on archival photo paper mounted on DiBond
Description: A series of 200 images.

Dr. Strangelove Dr. Strangelove is an ambitious project in which the artist reproduced 200 scenes from the film Dr. Strangelove as sculptures. He starts with Kubrick’s definitive film, drawing on it to look at issues surrounding appropriation, as a means to move beyond the shortlist outlined above. Using various commonplace items from his studio (a glue-stick, garbage bags, cutlery, felt markers and dirt to name a few) Horton constructs the overall composition of each scene. He then places, side by side, a black and white photograph of his improvised constructions with a reproduction of the original film still, amalgamating them into a single printed image. He directly uses images from the film painstakingly recreating them with a somewhat unexpected precision.

For Kristan Horton’s first exhibition in Vancouver, the Contemporary Art Gallery presented a selection of 38 photographs from Dr. Strangelove Dr. Strangelove. The doubling of the title of Stanley Kubrick’s 1964 film is the first key into this ambitious project in which the artist reproduces scenes from the film Dr. Strangelove as sculptures. Using various commonplace items from his studio (a glue-stick, garbage bags, cutlery, felt markers and dirt to name only a few) Horton constructed the overall composition of each scene. He then placed, side by side, a black and white photograph of his improvised constructions with a reproduction of the original film still, amalgamating them into a single printed image.
