Pushing Art, 2009installation, performance, sculpture

Lynne Heller’s mobile photographic sculpture Pushing Art brings virtual reality into live reality. In this installation, Heller integrates digital collage, comix style documentation and interactive performance as a means to break photographic norms, and push outside the static walls of the art gallery. Pushing Art is displayed in the evening out on Baldwin Street, in Toronto, Canada. The installation entails a machinima animation projected inside a sculptural rendition of a hot dog cart and newspaper stand. The position of the work outside literally makes it ‘outsider’ art. Heller pushes her art-cart to a local video store, restaurant, and record shop. While parked at these locations, the work emits an enticing colourful light.
