Double Hunt, by Seth Price

Rhizome writes:

Double Hunt comprises a large cylinder of transparent PVC freestanding on the floor, on which is printed fluorescent green fragments of images from the Lascaux Caves in France… To protect and restore the paintings the original caves were eventually closed in 1963, and replica caves were built for visitors in 1983. Double Hunt presents the image of a horse from one of the replica cave paintings, downloaded from the Internet by Price. The motif thus points to the precarious relationship between copy and original instigated by reproduction technologies, which often leave the copy far more accessible than the original.
