Cases is an iPod video installation recently showcased in Toronto, bringing 10 artists together to explore the theme of contemporary society’s obsession with health.
The visitor is confronted with a room with iPods, mounted at head height, streaming a video, and a headset for the sound.
The artists and their works:
- Janet Bellotto, A Collection of See and See
- Paula Braswell, Pills
- Jean Bridge, Disposible Membrane
- Laura Cunningham and Elaine Whittaker, Teratoma
- Lynne Heller, Pillflower World
- Joan Kaufman, Paraplegia
- Margie Kelk, Zen Calligraphy
- Ram Smocha, Hairy Up
- Jane Martin, Museum Mexico: cakes and over-the-counter body parts in various shades of pink.
Without singling out any one, they were thoughtful and provocative, particularly because of my own interest in health.
I look forward to viewing them again, perhaps on the web, somewhere. Cases is very good and needs a congenial home.
Cases was on show at the Red Head Gallery in Toronto, during October 2009.
