yes! soft bodies and hard bricks, something close to my heart…
this work pictured here stands in interesting contrast to the white, massive, almost sterilized installations, but it dig it all.
the installations feel a little sterile but i don’t really use that word negatively. what i mean is that so often the form of the work – almost the subject matter itself – is this sense of the abject that exudes from their structure. they are bones and flesh and folds and the morphology of disease, but enlarged and displayed but not as a kind of closet of curiosities… more like a collection of possibilities for human physiology transposed into interior spaces. so much to respond to. really interesting, and looks to be quite a virtuoso performance of carpentry – like sarah oppenheimer.
I can’t find it anywhere. I wish more video artists would put up work on youtube or google. The synopses of it that I’ve read all say “a short video showing a human body under a stack of brick breathing.” So it may not be to hard to extrapolate from the image.
