Took Him Minutes, Took Her Nowhere by Mike and Doug Starn, 2017


Mike and Doug Starn Took him minutes, took her nowhere Bamboo and rock climbing cord, 2017 Measures: 35” H x 110” L x 56” W Identical twins Mike and Doug Starn were born in 1961. First having received international attention at the 1987 Whitney Biennial, for more than 20 years the Starns were primarily known for working conceptually with photography and are concerned largely with chaos, interconnection and independence. Over the past two and a half decades, they have continued to defy categorization, effectively combining traditionally separate disciplines such as photography, sculpture, and architecture, most notably their series Big Bambú. Their work has been the subject of numerous solo and group exhibitions in museums and galleries worldwide. They have received many honors including two National Endowment for the Arts Grants in 1987 and 1995, The International Center for Photography’s Infinity Award for Fine Art Photography in 1992, and artists in residency at NASA in the mid-1990s. They have received critical acclaim in the New York Times, Dagens Nyheter, Corriere della Sera, Le Figaro, The Times (London), Art in America, and Artforum amongst other notable media outlets. Major artworks by the Starns are presented in numerous important public and private collections including The Museum of Modern Art (NYC), San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SF), Solomon R Guggenheim Museum (NYC), The Jewish Museum (NYC), The Metropolitan Museum of Art (NYC), Moderna Museet (Stockholm), The National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne), Whitney Museum of American Art (NYC), Yokohama Museum of Art (Japan), La Bibliothequè Nationale (Paris), La Maison Européenne de la Photographie (Paris), The Israel Museum Jerusalem and Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
