Nayland Blake
Artist
  • General Info
General Information
Description
Nayland Blake is an artist whose mixed-media work has been variously described as disturbing, provocative, elusive, tormented, sinister, hysterical, brutal, and tender. Among his most famous pieces are a log cabin made of gingerbread squares fitted to a steel frame entitled Feeder 2. When it went on display at the Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery, visitors furtively nibbled off bits and pieces of the cabin?s interior walls, while the smell of the gingerbread filled the gallery. Another well-known work is Starting Over, a video of the artist dancing with taps on his shoes in a bunny suit made to weigh the same as his lover, Philip Horvitz. The suit was so heavy that Blake could hardly move as he took choreographic directions from Horvitz offstage. Gorge is a video of the artist sitting shirtless being hand fed an enormous amount of food for an hour by a shirtless black man from behind. In 2009, a live version of Gorge was staged in which audience members fed Blake. His work often incorporates themes of masochism. Gorge follows two other major threads of Blake?s work: his biracial heritage?the artist?s father was black?and his pansexuality.
