I’m Garret Lynch (IRL)
A performance by Garrett Lynch.
The performance continues ideas of the artist, identity and being from the works “Between Saying and Doing” and “On Exactitude of Similitude”. The artist, wearing his now usual sandwich board, generates two hundred visually identical sandwich boards for participants to wear while all but taking control of the chat window to focus discussion on topics including identity, location, representation, original and copy, ‘reality’ and fiction.
