"Boy"
1999-08-21 until 1999-10-09
Center on Contemporary Art
Seattle, WA, USA United States of America

For CoCA, Fletcher + Rubin will create new work with and about Gregory Smart, an eleven-year-old boy who lives with his family in Seattle. Working closely with Gregory, Fletcher + Rubin will use a variety of strategies and media to present Gregory’s everyday life.

Some of the elements incuded in BOY

a large-scale altered photograph of Gregory with Fletcher + Rubin

a display of various used balls from Gregory’s backyard

a small-scale working soccer field where visitors to CoCA can play according to Gregory’s rules

a series of six video projections depicting scenes from Gregory’s life

To acquire these video pieces, Fletcher + Rubin made a “video helmet” for Gregory to wear while he went about his everyday activities-playing soccer, riding his bike, walking his dog, eating, playing the flute, reading books, etc.

Fletcher and Rubin are emerging artists from Berkeley, California who have created a number of community-based conceptual art projects, including These Fine People, portrait busts of ordinary citizens mounted on pre-existing light poles in downtown Fairfield, California; and at the San Francisco Art Institute, Anthony, an installation about art student Anthony Powells life. Using a variety of media and approaches the show explored some of Anthonys interests including heavy metal music and World Federation Wrestling. The installation included significant objects from Anthonys past, enlarged drawings of all the dogs Anthony has owned, a time line of Anthonys life, a video of Anthony demonstrating wrestling moves on the artists, photographs from his childhood in Long Island, NY, 20 portraits of Anthony produced by a beginning painting class at the school, and 30 T-shirts with photographs of Anthonys high school buddies on them.
