The following series of works comprised an installation by artist Matt Kotzin, which was accompanied by a poem with the same title that was printed on loose sheets of paper and which could be taken by the audience as exhibition ephemera.
Kotzin’s work oscillates between open critique and structured experimentation, and it ranges from the creation of objects to the creation of strategic alliances with fellow artists, curators, and his audience, all with the goal of expanding the possibilities for socialization, and the formal as well as informal exchange of ideas about art. In a world wrought by neoliberalism and encroaching technology, Kotzin maintains a lo-fi approach to art-making and an analogue approach to relationship building, and resorts to whimsical as well as poignant commentary on the comings and goings of the contemporary art world, and the spheres of domestic as well as global politics.
These images are from the original presentation of Hey Jodi in late 2013.
