Wafaa Bilal’s head camera

February 14, 2011 by Jeremiah

62 days ago, artist Wafaa Bilal implanted a camera to the back of his head, resulting in a recent surgery.

Check out his other well known works including …and Counting where Bilal “turns his own body – in a 24-hour live performance — into a canvas, his back tattooed with a borderless map of Iraq covered with one dot for each Iraqi and American casualty near the cities where they fell…”, and Domestic Tension where “viewers can log onto the internet to contact or “shoot” Bilal with paintball guns…”

Always a surprise and a shock to see what Wafaa is up to.

Instruments of Resurrection

Instruments of Resurrection
Opening Saturday / February 19
6–9pm
Runs: February 19 – March 19
@RootsnCulture

Featuring the work of Zachary Cahill, Theaster Gates, Mathew Paul Jinks, Aspen Mays, and Cauleen Smith. Curated by Elizabeth Chodos
Instruments of Resurrection explores how artists breathe new life into historical figures, personal stories, moments in time, or forgotten scientific methodologies. These resurrections dredge up rich histories and set into swirling motion narratives that were previously settled into a comfortable story. By bringing back to life something that was forgotten, hidden away, or misrepresented, these artists are giving their subjects the opportunity to retell and recast their narratives in the present tense.

Too Hard To Keep

February 9, 2011 by Jeremiah

TooHardToKeepInstall_web-1

“I have started an archive of photographs deemed ‘too hard to keep.’ Submissions may include photos of friends, family, pets, places/objects too hard to view again. The reason you can’t live with the photo or photo album I do not need to know. I am creating a repository for these images so that they may exist without being destroyed. Please dictate whether the images you submit to the archive are 1) images not to be shown again, or 2) images that may be exhibited in the future with other submissions to the archive.”

—Jason Lazarus

A dropbox is now located at The Garlic Press.

“…human figures interacting with everyday objects or architectural spaces…” Harrison and Wood’s performances are brilliantly imaginative.
