ThE FunnY GUY That Sticks His HAND IN the PAiNt BuckeT
Schools, gyms, hospitals, penitentiaries. Organized institutional behavior. Violence restrained for the sake of any institution. Its bathrooms, the break rooms, the classroom… the furniture. Holding areas for personal belongings. Places for excretion …and masturbation. Places where instincts are displaced and replaced.
Upon entering the exhibition the audience will be encountering sound sculptures that propel you toward violence, frustration, and the general impotence that take place in these communal/corporate spaces. Objects like air conditioning shafts, lockers and Urinal dividers to name a few, serve as compact models of the disciplinary mechanism.
“Discipline brings onto play its power which is analysis.” —Foucault.
