A group exhibition prompted by the 25th anniversary of the destruction of the Berlin Wall.This momentous global event caused contemplation on the idea of boundaries – not just political and geographical boundaries, but also boundaries of feminism, religion, race, culture and intellectual thoughts. The human spirit is what is most remarkable about this idea…it never wavers.It always seems to find a path to overcome adversity.This exhibition is about that spirit!
Format 18x24 2014-2015
The primal urges of Toth’s line based figures fuel their games of
conquest, loyalty, power, and pecking order. Each individual
seeks their place within the group as well as in the world. This
project depicts King of the Raft, a battle fought to be ruler of a
floating, bird-shit-covered, putting-green kingdom. The new
ruler revels in their status, until they too are overthrown and
the struggle for power continues. They move in a writhing pack,
roles and authority shifting, leaders crowned, usurped,
swallowed, and replaced. In a world where games are played
in an attempt to defy limitations - a raft becomes a kingdom!
