SOMETHING ABOUT FACE: ITINERANT POST-SPECTACLE PRACTICES AND THE WORK OF GRAHAM LANDIN
Languages of publication
The paper focuses on Canadian artist Graham Landin (b. 1982), whose works are an example of a new development that demonstrates an itinerant post-spectacle practice activated through urban public sphere(s). The works in question appropriate everyday elements and architecture of urban public sphere(s) to effectuate their dissemination and understanding. The materials used by the artist are large sheets of vinyl adhesive cut into anthropomorphic characteristics: noses, eyes, a mouth etc. These elements are then spatially arranged and adhered to a public wall, a public monument, windows, doors, basically anything the artist deems relatable to the characteristics of a human face.
