Hourglass Sand In The Vaseline

Hourglass Sand In The Vaseline

"Hourglass Sand in the Vaseline, Dyment's third solo exhibition at MKG127, continues the artist's exploration of the language and idioms inherent to cinema and popular culture. Formal tropes such as the diptych, the duet, the recto-verso and the alternate-take are employed to investigate black-outs, gaps, and other temporal disruptions and ellipses."

Lester Bangs' History of Punk, 2012

Lester Bangs' History of Punk, 2012

Biographies, shelf, photograph

An excerpt from a larger ongoing collaborative project with Scott Rogers that looks at backwards histories, in particular the connection between contemporary performance art and Diogenes of Sinope (404 BC), by way of Greil Marcus, Walter Benjamin and Blackadder. This work concretizes a letter rock critic Lester Bangs wrote to the Soho Weekly News in which he claims that he invented punk, but he stole it from a series of musicians, activists, actors, writers, a president and eventually Lady Godiva.
