This proposed exhibit, titled Unwedding: Why You Can’t Get Married is an outgrowth of a limited edition artist’s book by Nava Atlas (similarly titled Why You Can’t Get Married: An Unwedding Album).
The Narcissist’s Library, an installation-based exhibit-in-progress is comprised of a series of pieces that add up to an immersive experience; yet most can stand alone as individual works of art. The personal becomes political and vice versa, in these subversions of the familiar and mundane.
Greetings from the Pasture documents a live intervention I did in the late summer of 2011. Adjacent to one of the walking trails I enjoy near my Hudson Valley home is a pasture of grazing steer. I made signs displaying facts and statistics about animal agriculture, including greenhouse gases, animal suffering, rainforest destruction, etc. After completing the installation, I observed the path from a footbridge in the distance, and did indeed see many people slowing down to look at the signs.
