“Tired Tongues” at Westbeth Gallery!
In between teaching at SVA for the past two weeks, David Yockel Jr. and I completed a film for the NYFA fellows exhibition “Decensortized: A Safe Space” opening THIS Friday, August 5th, from 6-9pm at Westbeth Gallery (55 Bethune Street NY,NY).
The film is made up of over five hundred Pollack Flavor Co. stickers I found by the roll in a dumpster a few years ago. I wrote David’s poem, word by word, on each sticker, and we photographed them throughout Brooklyn over several sticky, sweaty days! Though in hindsight I would have shot even more frames per sticker, I am super psyched with the results, and will definitely be putting the stickers to use again in the future. If you would like to express yourself through flavor stickers this Friday, head on over the Westbeth Gallery…there will be stickers there waiting for your own hand drawn message!
