The Greatest of All Time

Flux Gallery, Winnipeg, MB


The Greatest of All Time was a reflection on sport and play. It used found sculpture, video and digital images to explore the relationship between fun and organized competition. I was interested in how societies (under patriarchy) tend to construct a spectrum of acceptable levels of enjoyment in competitive structures. Games are designed to incentivize winning, and are often thought of as micro representations of our world. Fun, at the competitive level, is not necessarily an emotional response that is highly sought after. This exhibition was both a representation and subversion of this constructed seriousness.
