Oedipal Art WrestlingThree Channel Video Installation
Oedipal Art Wrestling engages with questions concerning art, as well as my own relationship with my father. At the core, the video is of my dad and I arm-wrestling, except I am wearing a mask of my dad. Audio from my dad accompanies the video: he discusses his thoughts of contemporary art, what the video means, and my pursuit of art. As the viewers experience my dad’s real-time perception of the video while watching the very video being explained, the visual, audio, and conceptual grind together into a mishmash of contradicting and complementing postulations about art.
