Bacchus

Self Portrait as Caravaggio as Bacchus | photographs, performance, performance apparatus, readymades | 2019

Some artifacts and artworks accumulated in my ongoing obsessive, repeated reenactments of three paintings* of Bacchus by Caravaggio. I have seen all three in their galleries, but my intimacy with them is shaped, perhaps more, by my purchased reproductions.

* Two self-portraits at the Galleria Borghese and one portrait at the Galleria Uffizi.

 

Installation in the LaVerne Krause Gallery, University of Oregon, April 2019.

Performance 25 April 2019, 1-5pm.
