FOOL, 2017

three channel video; sound


A figure shrouded in a ghillie suit attempts to lure a coyote in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. A recontextualization of Joseph Beuys’ I Like America and America Likes Me; a series of actions intended to deflate a self-aggrandizing narrative. Created while an artist-in-residence at the de Young Museum.
 

Performers: Maria Dawn and Whitney Lynn
Sound: Whitney Lynn and Lena Tseabbe Wright
