Rubbing One Out

Joshua Vettivelu

Festivals: M:ST 7 Biennial | September 26 - October 11, 2014.

Rubbing One Out is a performance of laborious processes and object making. The inside of a bronze casting of the artist’s head will be hand polished to a mirror finish. The laborious process is a negotiation of narcissism and spirituality; a meditative but compulsive sublimation to rub the material until it is able to reflect back a clear image of its maker.
