the burning deck or the freezing sea

For close to twenty years, Philip von Zweck's diverse body of work (which includes painting, performance, sound and radio works, and participatory social projects) has balanced a deep-rooted desire to create objects with a distinct set of meta-concerns. He explores ideas such as the role and function of art, who art is intended for, the efficiency of art as a means for social and political change, where does someone get off making a painting, and so on; in all likelihood brought on by too much theory at an early age.
