THX 4 EXPLAINING ME / WE - 2017
ABOUT THIS WORK ///
This is a recontextualized phrase from a text work by artist and godfather of queer cinema, Jack Smith. Here, I've Injecting my own interest in clothing as a defining force in life and applied it to Jack's phrase. I'm also interested in echoing back a "Thank you" to Jack for his work and it's effect on queer cinema and culture. NOTE: The exhibition "Thanks for Explaining Me" curated by Neville Wakefield, is a great resource.
For gallery exhibitions, this is meant to be played on a loop with no sound on a large monitor.
