Felix Gonzalez-Torres - Portrait of Ross in L. A. (1991)
175 pounds of multicolored candy as a “portrait” of the artist’s partner Ross Laycock, who died of AIDS that same year.
Ross’s ideal healthy body weight was 175 pounds.
Attendees of the exhibit were instructed to take one piece of candy each. The dwindling pile paralleled Ross’s body languishing from the disease.
Gonzalez-Torres also instructed that the pile be continually replenished so that Ross could be symbolically reborn again and again.
actually kind of sad i didnt get picked to do a speech at graduation.
I miss the Cool Kids, Sir Michael Rocks just isn’t the same as The Cool Kids
found out recently he went to my school. trippy.
we give academy awards and oscars and shit to people who were born with symmetrical faces and who are good at reciting lines but we ignore people who create things like photoshop or other complex coding programs,people who create things like the internet,people who actually train their dumb monkey brains to a superhuman level and change the world
