Mark Dion’s biography on Art:21

Tar and Feathers and Concrete Jungle I

‘With some of my work, you can sense that it has a pretty dark tone. As much as
I’m engaged in a discourse that is ecological, I’m not one of those artists who is spending
a lot of time imagining a better ecological future. I’m more the kind of artist who is
holding up a mirror to the present and to the kinds of problems that we have right now.
As much as I would like to have a more utopian sensibility, my sensibility tends to the
dystopian, to the dark side.’
– Mark Dion
