It’s always fun being surprised by an artwork, and I totally enjoyed watching these Second Life performance from Eva and Franco Mattes, first one is the Gilbert and George Singing Sculpture re-enactment while the second is a re-enactment of Abromavic and Ulay’s Imponderabilia.
This show was chock full o’ The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction references…and I loved it. Each of the artists in this exhibit worked with ideas of the Internet in exciting ways.
Though I’m kind of sick of seeing Pres. Obama’s face at way too many exhibits lately, Kenneth Tin-Kin Hung’s series juxtaposing all kinds of things including politics, religion, and commerce are very fitting for the current crisis, and look great. There’s so many pockets and areas to explore in his digital prints, that spare nobody.
Kevin Bewersdorf’s google image search & walgreens.com combo made me laugh. He searched for “exhausted” on google images and used walgreens.com as a means to put the image on a blanket, tie, dog leash, and golf towel…now all we need is someone to print the image of the installation on something 🙂
