GARDEN STATE PROJECTIONS, KARINA AGUILERA SKVIRSKY
SMACK MELLON GALLERY & GALAPAGOS ART SPACE
AUGUST 29—31, 2004
August 18, 2004, New York—Garden State will be presented as a series of projections in NYC during the Republican National Convention of 2004. Using photojournalistic images of the Iraq war and its continuing aftermath, excerpted images of Iraqis and Americans are inserted into an afterlife scene set in a suburban department store parking lot. Garden State alludes to Bosch’s, Garden of Earthly Delights suggesting parallels between war and hell.
Garden State can be downloaded as a screen-saver from www.gardenstateprojects.net and is available as a limited edition print.
