Wing Rack

 

The Wing Rack

(2008)

 

 

In this installation the viewer encounters an antique clothing rack, the kind found at a department store or in the backstage area of a theater.

The rack is filled with pairs of feathered wings hanging on wooden hangers. The wings are like those found on a Halloween costume or nativity play.

A video, projected on the back wall, opens on a large field. The artist stands in the field wearing a pair of wings just like those on the rack. At first the artist stands motionless, but begins to jump up into the air attempting to fly.

The viewer is encouraged to interact with the wings in emulation of the artist.
