When I was at the Art Institute of Chicago about a year ago, there was a video installation by some guy that I understood to be “Pretty Famous” in the modern art world. I think that his schtick is that he takes pictures and/or makes videos of teens and pre-teens looking awkard and uncomfortable and, uh, it’s art.
Anyway, the video was this really gawky, uncomfortable-looking preteen girl lip-synching along to a boy band song; it sounded like the Backstreet Boys or someone from that era.
Anyone know who this is or what that work was? It really weirded me out.
