Sometime ago Rodell Warner and I took the secret excitement we got from reading personal ads and translated that into the most public form of advertisement we found in our immediate environment.
These are real ads. Really fascinating.
Cc: Everybody is installed at Studio (on the corner of Ariapita Avenue and Luis Street (pictured below) and at Brooklyn Bar (corner Roberts and Carlos streets, Woodbrook (images to follow)). Pieces are being offered for sale and will be on show for all of Erotic Art Week, 21-31 July, 2010.
Classified, Confidential - Everybody
Cc: Everybody explores the notion of privacy in the public domain. The project engages two common local media: the personals that appear in the national newspapers ; and a form of guerrilla street advertising developed locally to promote public parties. The publication of these, sometimes explicit, personal ads in the national domain may be considered surprising, given the context of a conservative, post-colonial island community. Cc: Everybody captures these private bits of black and white content and reproduces them, verbatim, in a most public and colourful medium. Cc:Everybody presents and interrelates this contemporary dichotomy as erotic art.
Enjoy and keep good,
