Editorial Reviews

Art Incarnation: Portraits of Artists As Art(r) by Arden Durham is an ongoing series of documentary films exploring the process of creation. Statement is Arden's artist statement and introduces the concepts behind the series.

Volume Four contains three episodes featuring sculptor and performance artist David Wyrick.

Man in Box happened in 1998 during the spring St. Paul Art Crawl. The news spread like wildfire around Lowertown and his performance landed him on the cover of local arts publications. David sealed himself inside a small box and put himself on display, keeping silent for the duration. The small space made it both a physical and mental challenge. Not only did David put himself in a box for 24 hours, he subjected himself to his audience's constant barrage of ideas about his piece. The film distills his "vacation" into 24 minutes of curious strangers, artistic isolation, cheering crowds of onlookers, and lots of questions. David exposes himself, and remarkably people respond with more kindness than cruelty to his vulnerable confinement. The film is just as much about the observers reacting to and interacting with David as it is about his experience. This was the inspiration for Art Incarnation as a series because it initiated Arden's obsession for recording artists at work. It was David's third constricted vacation experience.

Space Disruptor was recorded in March of 2000. David uses various methods of carving to sculpt an old beam of wood. This episode provides more intimate access to David as an artist in his studio. The film glimpses into some of David's formative past in art as well as his playful side. As with many of his performance art pieces, David wears a suit, gets naked (or is it nude?) and makes art while making a statement. The danger involved with chainsaws, axes and hatchets provide extra excitement to an unclothed body at work.

Rock Redistributor was performed at a gallery in Minneapolis in December of 2000. David used pieces of matter from a previous performance piece and froze them into drawing blocks. Such an unusual drawing method conveyed in performance drew the question, "is it art?" from the audience, and David explains how it is, even though at first glance it could be seen as a mess. This is one of many rock redistribution art projects that David undertook with the rock remains from Rock Crushor, documented on Volume Three of Art Incarnation.

Contains Nudity and Profanity.
