For over a year I worked with local cafe proprietor Jonathan Legare as the artist-in-residence of his southeast cafe and community resource center, LEGARE'S. The title of my graduate exhibition, The Idiosyncratic Element is the Precursor to Change, is an aphorism authored by Legare himself. Acting as an experimental documentary installation, the show uses Legare's life and times as a starting point, and engages his particular interests. These include the novels of Balzac, guns, custom motorcycles, philosophy, and the aphorisms of his customers, among others.
I projected a symbolically charged video onto Jonathan's workstation at the cafe. I videotaped this projection and installed the result in the show. Read the card below for more information.
