SENIOR YEAR INSTALLATIONS:
“The Sniper” or “SARG”
Plaster Bandages, t-shirts, cups, and plastic bags
This self-portrait, “SARG”, is at once an erasure and containment of self. By casting the body as a found object, I distort it and record it. I leave behind a white cocoon of a body – a shell that is simultaneously me and not me. Exemplary of this confusion were people’s responses to the project. While transporting the piece to its show spot, friends conjured several names for the yet untitled “SARG”. Some said with a chuckle, “hey, we got to move YOU downstairs”. Some called it “it”, or “him”, or “her”.
