NY Trip: Whitney Biennial

“Three Critiques / Tres Críticas”

“These five photographs document what Daniel Joseph Martinez has described as ‘radical performative experiment of becoming post-human and the evolution of a new species.’ Martinez uses his own body to interrogate and ‘to bear witness to the extraordinary moment in human history, our own self-destruction.” The artist inhabits the identities of Frankenstein’s monster from the film _Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein_, Count Dracula from the film _Nosferatu the Vampyre_, the Engineer form the film _Prometheus_, an Alien Bounty Hunter from the television series _The X-Files_, and the Drone Host from the current television series _Westworld_.”
