Description

Published on the occasion of the exhibition “Dave Allen – Canon to the Hammer of the Gods” at Secession (Vienna) in which Dave Allen addresses on several different levels the phenomenon of myth creation and society’s approach to it. Using a form of sampling and mixing that is reminiscent of musical methods, Allen is able to interweave different (historical) themes in free association, and to thereby create a new and unusual narrative line connecting the history of Secession, legendary drummer Cozy Powell (among others, a member of the hard rock bands Black Sabbath and Whitesnake) and the Nordic legend of Thor, the god of thunder.

Includes an essay by Raimer Stange.
