Amy Jorgensen's 21 Bites
Rising star and Snow College professor Amy Jorgensen scarcely needs to curry favor with us, so we are confident that any resemblance between her title and ours is purely coincidental. On display to the public now through March 26 during Snow’s bi-annual faculty show, “21 Bites” features that many neon pink marshmallows that the artist has risked health and welfare to bite in half.|0| While recalling the portrait-booth series in which she gobbled an apple, the puffy residues, complete with forensic evidence of oral violation, bring to mind some of the same anatomical conundrums that her Body Archive raises (both available in the December 2006 edition). Post-Modernist Hypothesis (which never qualified as a ‘theory’ and, it’s now obvious, never will) might argue that the artist doesn’t exist, but that a process was here permitted to play out, its meaning to be determined only by society at large. Presumably, then, the 33-inch tall nude female student by sculptor Brad Taggert, elsewhere in the gallery and to all appearance invisible to the scrupulously proper LDS audience that attended the opening, doesn’t actually exist. As for “21 Bites,” while Duchamp’s Female Fig Leaf and the ‘scarification’ sculptures of Hannah Wilke come to mind, these three-times-seven gape-mouthed Koi who have risen to the surface to be fed are both more intimate and more provocative.
