Oedipal Art Wrestling

3-Channel Video Installation

Oedipal Art Wrestling engages with questions concerning art, as well as my own relationship with my father. At the core, the video is of my dad and I arm-wrestling, except I am wearing a mask of my dad. Audio from my dad accompanies the video: he discusses his thoughts of contemporary art, what the video means, and my pursuit of art. As the viewers experience my dad’s real-time perception of the video while watching the very video being explained, the visual, audio, and conceptual grind together into a mishmash of contradicting and complementing postulations about art.
