Writing A Crime/Reconstructing a Crime

2001
Sculpture/carriage 10’x9’x6’/305cmx274cmx183cm, two live horses, two channel video 32 minutes each, painted wood, plexiglass mirrors, vinyl, steel construction

 

This outdoor installation consists of a carriage hitched to two horses, each at opposite ends, resulting in its being immobilized.  The soft and comforting interior of this carriage is more reminiscent of futuristic vehicles than those of old-fashioned wagons, providing a jarring contrast in the work.  This interior provides a setting for viewers to watch two mirroring video pieces reconstructing and retelling stories of escape from a crime scene, reenacted by fictitious and real-life protagonists.
