Star Spangled Cover (feat André Lassalle and Greg Tate)


Performance: May 13, 2009

Installation: May 14-23, 2009

Exhibition, New York, NY

A performance event and installation at Exhibition, a temporary artist-run space at 211 Elizabeth Street in New York City. Legendary New York guitarist André Lassalle played a cover of Jimi Hendrix's Woodstock performance of the Star Spangled Banner for a small audience in front of a green screen. Video of the performance was composited with a contemporary photograph of Yasgur's farm, the site of the 1969 Woodstock concert. The resulting video was then projected onto the gallery wall twice: two projectors pointed at the same spot on the wall, two DVDs playing out of sync.
