We called in his weeping, desperate mother, who begged him to get help. He took to harassing other students and one day, after calling me a bitch, he lobbed the n-bomb at one of the girls. I actually only dimly recall what happened next. All I know for sure is that a friend of mine who taught several doors down said that she could hear me yelling at him even with her door shut.
When finished, I was shaking. All I could think was: I am a terrible teacher. I was ashamed of my loss of control. To be fair, none of us could. He bombed his classes and did not graduate on time. The incident with Jorge was the most extreme I ever had, but for all the five years I taught, I was dogged by the worry that I was a bad teacher.
Despite everything the books tell you, teaching is above all a deeply messy human endeavor; for all the exhilarating highs, there are terrible days when you feel like a profound failure, and those are the days when you long for a reality check. Am I really a bad teacher? How would I know? I know, I know: I was given months off work, saw psychiatrists and other mental-health professionals and had to fight to get back into the classroom nine months later.
I managed it in large part thanks to my now-wife, who I met through this illness but it was a pyrrhic victory. This can be quite flat, an everyday scene with a high level of relatability, an account of a social exchange. An initial character does the setup for the following one. Once they assemble, a problem arises, then others may join.
Delivery is a matter of sympathy. Even if it works the other way around. You can love to hate someone. I intend to depict these situations genuinely, and concurrently I attempt to escalate them. This sequence of conditional events pretty much guides my process, which writes the narrative of an image. This depiction of an emotional state and a psychological condition—. Sometimes you need to go full frontal and other times it requires a more subtle, poetic approach, almost devoid of humor.

This helps to delineate the space of the stage and brings us back to the quality of delivery—a comedian has to achieve this but paintings do as well, on the back of their vocabulary of gestures and signs. This has to happen as believably as a joke does in order to pull off what it needs to do. It is rooted in a system of belief and disbelief in signs and matters of aesthetics. How does that happen? But there is a tendency to figuration, and I have to admit to a hierarchy between the two. The figure is definitely more accentuated.
On the other hand, an abstract part may evoke a figure. I usually look for the space in between, where neither is fully articulated. This process is dialogical. The fine line between exposing and exhibiting an object or the image of the artist itself. Five years ago, you imitated the dance moves of the pop icon Ciara as a public performance.
By affirming these moves as an amateur dancer you were also exposing the image of yourself as an artist. You went on to do public stand-up comedy, portray a painter as a shrimp in a collaborative video piece, and recently dressed as a large banana to perform in front of your huge painting at Kunsthalle Bern. This harks back to my wish to approach any given subject through humor.
I look for different disciplines and methods to do that. The image of an artist as a comedian is something that I care about, as comedy has an analytical aspect but at the same time never takes its own position too seriously. Virginia Overton at Kunsthalle Bern 31 October Once I arrived for the installation, I began to try things out. The work is conceived as a reaction to the space and the materials I found here and around Bern. At times the work can be a literal reflection of the space.
Your work has barely any illusionistic qualities. My hope is that the experience of the work is physical, but also objective. The pieces are what they are: Planks of wood wedged between the floor and a wall. Pieces of real parquet hung on walls. I feel like the work I make can exist in a museum or on a driveway or in a barn or whatever, and still function as real things in the world, not as some extraneous objects to be placed on a pedestal.
So how much of the cultural or social makeup of these objects and materials carries over from their point of origin to the Kunsthalle? Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.
