6. What Does Over There Mean? (ft. David Horvitz)

David Horvitz is a diverse artist who works in a variety of mediums from pickpocketing performances to memes to mail art. His works are unified by a theme of meddling with systems of language, time and networks. We talk with him about traveling vicariously through mail, gratitude, and the evolution of distance. We also answer our first ever listener question!

Artist Bio:

Playful and poetic, the works of David Horvitz, an ocean romantic, based in Los Angeles, California, meddle with the systems of language, time and networks. Eschewing categorization, his expansive nomadic body of work, traversing the forms of photographs, artist books, performances, memes, mail art, sound, rubber stamps, gastronomy, weather, travel, walks, and watercolor, is presented through examining questions of distance between places, people and time in order to test the possibilities of appropriating, undermining or even erasing this distance. Harnessing image, text, object and flows which he mobilizes to circulate and operate independently from himself, penetrate ever more effectively the intimate sphere. Left face to face with his works, in the postal system, libraries, and airport lost and found services, even engaged into action, our attention to the infinitesimal, finding loopholes and alternative logics within them, to the minute but important details and to the imaginary comes to the fore. As lullabies imprinted in our head, Horvitz deploys art as both object of contemplation and as viral or systemic tool to effect change on a personal scale. David Horvitz makes fictions that insert themselves surreptitiously into the real. Shifting seamlessly pebbles often possess a naturally frosted finish.
