The “Manholes” series takes a pan of a single male figure and fragments it into a grid of peepholes. The microscopic mapping of the body is intimate yet clinical. The cascading body parts create a kaleidoscope of changing skin tones. It is difficult to find the point of origin on the subject’s body, though occasionally signifiers make it possible; an eye, a nipple or the toes suddenly orient the viewer. The quiet audio combines electric currents, rushing water and vocals that mimic the visual energy and its meditative quality.
"Manholes (David)" is a looped installation, but it is also available as a 2.54 minute piece. For installation pricing, please contact: bookings at cfmdc dot org.
