Sculpt Off

Performance

2015

The masculinity of sculpture is in the performative act of its creation.

The wrestling ring is a space to spar with one’s opponent, to engage in direct combat in a test of skill and proof of greatness.

The narratives projected on, and by the participants in, the form of entertainment that is wrestling are the same as those in the high cultured realm of Art.

The rules of the contest are as follows: Contestants have 1 minute to sculpt each object placed in front of them, there are 14 found objects and 1 object chosen by the audience. The winner is decided by audience approval.
