Glen Fogel.

Glen Fogel. Glen from Colorado (2009). Installation

 

In the installation of this American artist received personal letters are read out loud with the artists name – Glen – flashing in fluorescent letters. The emptying of the personal is also expressed in his other piece of the same year – Art from Kansas City. Here the artist appropriated male escort Mike Jones’s memoir of his relationship with evangelical icon Ted Haggard. Blacking out the majority of the text, Fogel inserted his name in lieu of the author’s, and left uncensored sentences containing the word ‘Art’ – Haggard’s pseudonym and middle name Arthur.
