Vic't

Vic’t is the diminutive of a colloquial term describing the state of a person victimized by theft. Using the politics of subversive quotation the work contained in Vic’t uses aesthetic artifacts stolen from commercial billboards. These ads are re-worked and re-purposed to serve as practical training exercises to strengthen one’s critical gaze. Once prepared the viewer can be more vigilant when interacting with advertisements in their natural environment.

In keeping with the exhibition theme, the music program includes selections from appropriated sources: covers, samples, unofficial remixes & mash ups. Produced by Tahir Hemphill. Mixed by DJ Blessed Productive.
