"I Have No Option, Just History"
Tel Est La Guerre: Waffle Holes of Waterloo is the latest body of work by Jophen Stein, who has somehow managed to incorporate the waffle and its batter into history. Stein is not as heavy-handed with the Napoleonic Wars as, say, historians would be, but his themes of the relationships between past and present are put forward tidily through a variety of motifs. Irony and a play on words help move Stein’s narrative along towards a parody of contemporary society and the past that led to it.
Artist: Jophen Stein
Tel Est La Guerre: Waffle Holes of Waterloo continues at Culver City’s project: gallery LA through Feb.2.
