ArtFiction is a collaborative project developed by Rino Pizzi and involves exchanges between writers, visual artists and actors/performers. This project addresses a broad range of cultural perspectives on the relations between art production and critical narratives and the effect of artists’ biographies on the public perception of their work. Ten writers were invited to write about ten fictional Texas artists supposed to be living and working any time between the 1940’s and the early 1980’s. Ten actual artists responded by creating work that could be attributed to the imagined artists, and ten actors sat for photographic portraits of the fictional personas. Ten actors studied the biographies and impersonated the artists for photo sessions in photographic styles current with their time and consistent with their personas. In the broad landscape of Texas modern art history, the narratives of the various fictional artists will create a symbolic counterpart to for the actual historical experience, which to date is still far from being fully researched and assessed.
For this eccentric collaboration, Caroline created the work of fictional artist Morris Blodgett. The piece in the show is a 14-foot metal painting-sculpture on corrugated steel. ArtFiction is on view at the Lawndale Art Center in Houston, Texas until October 22nd.
