8ft Yellow installed at Knowledge and other myths, Platform Arts, Belfast.
How to Make a Masterpiece is a satirical 'how to' video made in response to Art Historian Giorgio Vasari’s Renaissance artist biographies. The work is narrated by a seeming expert as she instructs the viewer on the production of the sculpture 8ft Yellow, a yellow life guard chair. In combination these works over-identify with the artist as genius myth to critique androcentric art historicism in the context of contemporary art practice.
Both works made in collaboration with Avril Corroon.
