New Media: David Borawski
Apr 26, 2014 to Aug 31, 2014
This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).
Hartford-based multi-media installation artist David Borawski likes to take the viewer on a visual and conceptual ride, leading you down a path then leaving you to find your way home. Unleashing ideas, images and ready made materials that the viewer may not normally consider as art supplies, Borawski’s work draws upon social and political events that have influenced major shifts in our collective consciousness, positioning them as eerie precursors to present-day circumstances.
God Save Your Mad Parade is an installation that addresses anarchy and the proliferation of crime and lawlessness at both ends of the wealth and class spectrum, through video, sound and sculpture. Borawski assembles video clips of ceiling fans and projects them onto the gallery floor. At the same time, the viewer is subjected to a digitally manipulated soundtrack of surveillance and helicopter noise. Other elements will include plastic chain, fabric bandanas and corrugated cardboard. Borawski explains, “chains suggest restraint and control. That is the function of law and authority, chains stop someone from doing something.” As the Sex Pistols lyrics conclude, “no future for me, no future for you.”
