Playing Goatherd in Queens, Nari Ward Tends a Subversive Flock

by Osman Can Yerebakan
When I visited Nari Ward’s Socrates Sculpture Park exhibition on a spring day, children were roaming the park, enjoying the mellow weather. Presumably on a day trip from a local school in Queens, these kids of diverse backgrounds and and colors, were climbing on Scapegoat, a mammoth-scale goat figure reclining in the middle of the park. They were giggling at Bipartition Bell, a pair of giant copper goat testicles hanging from a steel and wood structure, facetiously evoking the Liberty Bell in... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? My work is a study of relationship between a found object and the emotion it evokes, leading to narratives in a different space. My specific interest lies in the deconstruction and re-framing of vernacular photographs. In working with these, I have found how essentially similar family structures are across cultures. Family albums have disappeared with the advent of digital photography; these fragile prints inadvertently document... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? I don’t set out to communicate something in particular—it’s not so intentional or what directs my work; rather, communication/meaning grows out from an intuitive process of making that’s tactile and responsive. It emerges from an exchange, like a conversation; it’s somatic, being realized through the body, like dance or music. The work is a combination of the process, or the performance as I like to call it, and the “thing” that’s... [more]

Anicka Yi: Life is Cheap

by Joel Kuennen
Anicka Yi, the recipient of the 2016 Hugo Boss Prize, opened consisting of three works, Lifestyle Wars, Immigrant Caucus, and Force Majeure, at the Guggenheim on April 21, 2017. The exhibition title is one part indictment, one part plea. “Life is cheap” is usually said with a quiet lilt; eyes down, a slight shake of the head. The disgust is projected both outward and inward. It’s a gesture of shame. But Yi hints at perhaps another invocation of the saying—that life is in fact cheap and easy... [more]
