Artist Talk | Vicky Sabourin

Spring was a Man in New York is the third chapter of Vicky Sabourin’s ongoing project, Becoming Invisible. Taking over the gallery as her studio for two weeks, Sabourin will conduct a casting call to find the perfect double of a fleeting glimpse of a stranger she encountered in New York years ago—a man who threw pinecones over fences, in a gesture that seemed intentional and performative, but the purpose of which was ultimately unknown–a double for the artist. From this on-site work, Spring was a Man in New York will ultimately result in an installation including 8x10 headshots, records of her interactions with the actors, and larger photographic works.
