The motif of this installation Obscenity is an airplane Ohka, the first and the last airplane manufactured ever solely for suicidal attacks and actually employed in real battle. I titled this piece particularly form this line by Milan Kundera in his Immortality. "Hate traps us by binding us too tightly to our adversary. This is the obscenity of war: the intimacy of mutually shed blood, the lascivious proximity of two soldiers who, eye to eye, bayonet each other." In this version of Obscenity, I hung the airplane in the building of McColl Center for Visual Art, which was formerly an American Gothic-style church in Charlotte, NC.
The project Obscenity was sponsored by McColl Center for Visual Art
