ARANCIATA YOU GLAD I DIDNT SAY BANANA
April 30 - May 31, 2016
Sean Bluechel, Eamon Ore-Giron & Zach Rockhill
“God doesn’t make orange juice, God makes oranges.” – Jesse Jackson
The three artists have decided that the show should be a single task, and as specific, literally and figuratively, as possible: “Make an orange”.
When deeply pointless, assignments sometimes deliver pay-offs when you least expect them. Seen against earlier impulses in Bluechel’s work towards directive artwork, such as commissioning paintings with strict parameters by untrained artists, the invitation can be assumed to be both a cognitive irritant and subversive gift.
Directions allow for the ‘hand’ to function not through physical abundance but rather through psychological diversity.
The terms are agreed upon, individual interpretation is inevitable.
