The theme of the end of the world, of the last man on earth, recurs in our literary and cinematographic culture and in our imaginary: “we had this dream before, the dream that we’re alone.”
Rather like the narrator in the video belonging to the Kadist collection, The secret life of things, the artist John Menick is a 'professional spectator'. He has written numerous texts on cinema and art which he publishes on his blog or in magazines. The artist, who has remained outside the art market, is recognized by numerous institutions and has exhibited at Maison Rouge (Paris), Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers, PS1 (New York), Artists Space (New York), CCA Wattis Institute (San Francisco), Midway Contemporary Art (Minneapolis).
John Menick was born in 1976 in White Plains, New York. He lives and works in New York.
