Slow Lick

September 10th – September 18th, 2017

Abrons Art Center, New York

This is a slow lick.

The floor and walls of the gallery have been washed with artificial saliva, leaving a thin coating throughout; digital prints from film developed with the same substance are adhered to the wall using a mix of the bio fluid and an adhesive; a pipe in the ceiling slowly drips the synthesized spit onto a single negative atop a light box; bar soap ends molded by the hand of a bather were re-lathered and stuck to the floor with saliva.
