DCP (David Cunningham Projects) is pleased to announce “I want to want you like I wanted to want you” – a solo exhibition of new and recent work by Bay Area based artist Richard T. Walker. The exhibition includes video installation, digital prints, collage, text, and live performance.

Richard T. Walker’s new works in this exhibition are the continuation of an evolving investigation into the natural landscape and its use as a contextual tool to mobilize thoughts and self-reflection. With strong nods towards the European and American Romantic periods, Walker uses spoken dialogue, music and performance to facilitate engagement and analysis that is both contemplative and active. The work questions how we perceive nature as well as how we imagine nature perceiving us. This creates a continual dialogue that challenges our personal and general perceived notions of Landscape and Nature encouraging us to ask questions about how we belong within the contemporary environment and subsequently within our selves and our society.

The central piece in the exhibition “what am we/you/I waiting for?” finds artist and singer/songwriter Will Oldham singing to the landscape in a lament devoted to intense Sublime experiences promised in the 18th century but yet to be delivered.
