ADORATIONS OF ART

Adoration is an ongoing video art series. I capture individuals and crowds looking at famous works of Western art in the world’s most popular museums. While looking at the “Adoration,” viewers are confronted with the act of looking itself and the social complexities of seeing and being seen. Furthermore, the juxtaposition of contemporary tourists viewing the paintings raises the question about the idea of time. Finally, the video asks what conclusions can be draw about the spectator viewing the video, far removed from the work of art, from that of the others in the video content itself viewing the paintings in museums?
