Kim Jones

December 15 - 16, 1990
Description
Kim Jones's installation occupies two rooms whose floors are covered with mud-splattered newspapers. Spider-like forms made of bare branches hang from the ceiling and lie on the floor. Masses of rats and trees are drawn around the walls of one room.

For the performance within the space, Jones covers his nearly nude body with mud and carries a heavy weight of branches, evoking images of his time spent as a Marine in Vietman. With his appearance thus altered, he walks about the gallery and talks with visitors in unplanned encounters about whatever topics may arise.
