Over the last several years, Kader Attia has focused on the concept of repair as a way of understanding history and generating sculptural forms. His installation for “Here and Elsewhere" pairs two objects that are further linked through processes of restoration: a wooden board and a Carrara marble bust. Similar to one owned by his father, the board is a found object common in North Africa used to teach writing to children as well as Arabic to Berbers. The bust depicts a wounded French soldier from World War I whose face was surgically repaired by Hippolyte Morestin (1869–1919), a French surgeon and pioneer in modern cosmetic surgery. These two objects reveal the differences as well as the overlaps between technological innovation and craft, modernity and tradition, and between ideal forms and improvised reconstructions. Attia’s larger project on repair exposes the mechanisms of assimilation, syncretism, and colonialism that reverberate into the present.

The group formed out of a traditional rock band called The Overland Stage Electric Band, working regularly in the East Village. Simeon was the singer, but began to incorporate a 1940s vintage audio oscillator into the show, which alienated the other band members to the extent that the group was eventually reduced to the duo of Simeon and Taylor

If I ever wanted to start a band again, I would select band mates via alienation.

“Slim Shady doth protest too much, methinks,” it seems to wink in its deft marriage of the rapper and his pop doppelgänger.
