Photos from April Art Walk

By | April 10th, 2011 | No Comments

From battle bots to a tower constructed of hair (Rapunzel’s, presumably) to Jillian Mayer’s viral-vying music video to her unborn grandchild, last night’s art walk had a lot going on. Even showing up before sunset and the walk running later than ever didn’t give me time to see everything I wanted to. But once you witness a child’s sloppy entry into the world through her mother’s dilated vagina, you’ve sort of seen enough, right? Here are some photos from the walk.

Family Matters features three videos: graphic footage of the birth of a child (supposedly Mayer herself); Mayer in a series of costumes — from Antoinette-era courtesan to wrinkled-faced baby — singing “I am your grandma” over a catchy/annoying electro loop; and a relatively humdrum piece where two pajama-clad figures move around awkwardly in front of a stone wall. This last invites viewers to don old-school 3D glasses (to no effect).

Breaking it down

Borscht Film Festival staged a battle-bot fight in Wynwood Market to promo a screening of Joey Daoud’s film Bots High at O, Cinema. This was the mascot.

Not to be outdone by robots, a troupe of yogis put on their own demonstration in the Wynwood Walls.

He was not a part of it.

Also weird.

. . . the aforementioned tower constructed of hair, also by Woodgate. (Also weird.)
