足球 ,ποδόσφαιρο, voetbal, Fußball, le football, calico, futebol, футбол, fútbol, football, soccer. Whatever you may call it, the current installation Short Court by artist Jake Myers explores the interplay between player, spectatorship, and the specific spatial limitations found at it’sa_pony! projects. While Myers’s videos, sculptures and mixed media work are formally diverse they are strengthened and placed under his coinage and thematic concerns of Relational Athletics.
Jake Myers lives, works, and teaches in Chicago. Myers was a co-founder of the Pentagon Gallery and currently runs the Octagon Gallery in Wicker Park. His strange constructions have been featured at the Co-Prosperity Sphere in Chicago, the Queer Cultural Center in San Francisco, the Current Gallery in Baltimore and many others.
Bring your game face because there will be a sculptural prize for the winner of Short Court!
