My father urinated on my friend’s front lawn. We both saw. I had never felt so embarrassed. I turned away and apologized on his behalf. At this moment he straddled the boundary between my known and respected father and a pissing animal.
Madison Elrick’s practice is interested in the witnessing of moments of inappropriate and private behaviour such as urinating and defecating. The works document manipulated materials, forms which have been pushed through holes and squished under great weights. The material is then left to be encountered, waiting to be witnessed.
