Artist is Absent (2014)

Project Statement

The idea of Artist is Absent is rooted in the critical engagement of the audience through exploring the image of the artist as an outsider, who [may] exist(s) in a different social and cultural context.

In this project artist mailed hundreds of his portrait to random people across the States asking them, in a letter, to tear his portrait apart and mail the pieces back to him. By destroying the image of the artist, participants were able to capture part of their own image through the trace of their cuts.
