+billion- (selected for EVA International 2014) presents an exclusively online space where art criticism ‘acts’ rather than just ‘reflects’ through an irregular model of critical interiority delivered with urgency and depth.
American artist, David Horvitz, makes art whilst living an idiosyncratic life, or at least proposing one. To summarize his art, therefore, would be as tautological as describing a life not yet lived.
On March 25, 2014, Mr. Horvitz landed in Dublin, Ireland, and rather than fighting off the obvious jet lag and adjusting to Greenwich Mean Time, he kept his daily rhythms on California time, such as eating dinner at 2am.
Two days later at sunset on the 27 March, (18:51 pm), with the camera pointing towards the horizon – a recurring point of reference in the artist's work – Mr. Horvitz and I walked through Phoenix Park, Dublin, until dusk. We chatted informally about his art while trying to avoid talking about his proposed work for EVA International 2014, because we were living it while we roamed and rambled and lost our way in the dying light of the park.
