Carr uses his materials to unify the unlikely and improbable. Through combining performative/documentary film, set photography and carved wooden sculpture this exhibition asks the audience to question the context of the work while making considerations about their own relationship to the objects presented. Like pausing a movie before the action happens he forever holds us in the short-lived moment.

The lightness of his subject is made dense, heavy and monumental through its materiality and gesture, however, the paradox operating here is as one much of time as it is of material. The Weight of the Sun, held at Michael Lett is an investigation and a reconstruction of his discoveries during his artist residency in Sapporo.
