Open Call: Asif Mian
JUN 19 – AUG 25, 2019
A mixed-media installation simulating the surveillance of a closed sportswear store
About this commission
The mixed-media installation, Decoys in Varying Shades of Nothingness and Specter simulates the surveillance infrastructure in a sportswear store after hours. Two infrared thermal cameras project temperature variances of bodies and objects within the installation. Display racks hold plastic clothing and aluminum footwear, materially altered to convey the shifting perspective between reality and virtuality. The haunting installation explores the duality of seen versus unseen; real versus virtual; and threat versus decoy.
Asif Mian is a visual artist who lives in Brooklyn and works at the intersection of sculpture, video, and performance.
