Con Artist Collective Art Show

Sunday, November 18, 2012

During the week, I attended the Con Artist Collective art show with some friends. We were there to support our friend, Josef, who showcased two pieces. His piece (which is shown below), was based on the painting of Jesus in Spain. The story behind it was that the fresco painting was deteriorating from years of moisture (which is the first image in his piece). Cecilia Gimenez took it upon herself to restore it and well, let's just say it's not appealing at all. [You can read more about the story here.] So, as part of this story, Josef welcomed guests to draw on the "enhanced" painting to make it better or make it worse.

my boyfriend Andres caught me in the act of adding my own little creation
 
Later on, Josef invited guests to cut a piece of his Batman costume -- a manifestation of the original performance Cut Piece by Yoko Ono. Audience members are invited to take a piece of the clothing and they can cut whatever and wherever they want. I had the opportunity to cut first and I chose to carve out a heart from his cape. :)
