For this installation I’ve taken images from Italian Vogue, Zoo magazine, Artforum, gardening books etc. to build a fantastic version of Wall Street. Although it has no direct connection to the original film, the installation creates a similar atmosphere of greed and excess, set against the background of money, art and New York.
I’ve lived in New York so the work touches on a subject I love. I find the close connection of art and money fascinating, as well as the supposed good taste that it implies.
The starting point for this piece was the economic downturn. I found myself stuck at home watching endless movies, MTV and searching the internet, when previously I was always on a plane travelling to art fairs or living in New York and Paris.
There’s no art where I live. I made this lonely connection to art the subject of my work, using ASAP Rocky, Andy Warhol, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Tracey Emin, Frederico Fellini, Paul McCarthy etc. as my subjects. Endless movie titles triggered each body of work as I appropriated images.
The installation The Making of Wall Street 2015 is silent, with a few tinsel curtains and black and yellow painted walls. Party chandeliers and balloons droop as Wall Street takes a hit. The collages are rough and licentious like the subject.
I’ve previously ‘re-made’ the films La Dolce Vita (1960) as The Making of La Dolce Vita 2011 and 8 Mile (2002) as The Making of 8 Mile 2012 at Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery. Overall, I’ve done about 100 re-makes as DVD projections, collages, installations, backlit photos and wig stretchers. Many more are under way.
