LEANING SCREEN continues a series of virtual sculptural works where Jeremy Bailey’s artist persona playfully inserts itself in sculptures inspired by famous contemporary artworks. This particular sculpture is inspired by Robert Smithson’s LEANING MIRROR, a work consisting of two mirrors, 6’ high, placed back-to-back and inserted 30” off the floor into a mound of soil and stones. Smithson’s sculptural works begun in 1968 were self-named ‘Nonsites’: natural materials were gathered from designated outdoor sites and then situated indoors, often with fabricated objects such as mirrors, containers, or maps. Here, unnatural materials are gathered and situated in meta-space. A flatscreen with a video feed from a drone replaces the mirror, coins take the place of soil, and Famous New Media Artist Jeremy Bailey inserts himself in-between as a playful commentary on identity in an era where the internet has evolved from cooperation to commerce and where influencer fame is the primary currency.
