Squeaky Wheel's PEEPSHOW 2011: It’s Complicated is this Saturday, February 26th. Peepshow is Squeaky's annual fundraiser/art party, and involves bands, art installations, food and drink.
There's also an art auction. Ideally, the art auctioned off has something to do with the theme of Peepshow, and with this in mind I've created a piece titled "Perversion". It's a perversion of Felix Gonzalez-Torres's Untitled (Double Portrait), 1991 owned by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. From the AK website, "Untitled (Double Portrait), 1991, is a “stack” piece consisting of hundreds of sheets of paper printed with a gold double-circle image and stacked together on the gallery floor, available for viewers to take away ad infinitum. The image featured, the doubled touching/overlapping circle, represents one of the most important themes in Gonzalez-Torres’s work: the pairing of two like people in togetherness, solidarity, and love."
I used the sheet I've taken from the Albright-Knox to build a table-top game. The two colorful handles shift the level of the print. The idea is to drop the pink balls into the holes in the middle of each circle.
