I recently got linked to this terrific picture of my piece I think you thought I was cute, which I produced for Naomi Miller’s first Museum Everywhere Everyone Everything exhibit Sexual Souvenirs. This simple mixed media work is terrific to create. It makes a kind of performance out of the past, where text serves as a stand-in for the interpersonal relationships that I usually prefer to examine live. It’s also interesting to think about creating relatability via objects. I don’t want to go so far as to say that we as audience “perform” against the backdrop or in the context of still artworks, but I think that particularly in the context of a project like MEEE, which deformalizes the idea of museum and links it back to “the every” (Naomi’s words), there is an opportunity to insert one’s self into the work or environment in a different way.
