All Consuming-installation complete

The final sign, pointing toward the Malaysian city of Gangga Negara, was bolted in place on Thursday. After circling both signs and applying additional paint to small scrapes and scuffs, the installation is essentially complete.

We spot a couple birds perched on the signs but so far none have taken advantage of the bounty suddenly available. But with the spring migration under way, that will likely change and the signs will begin transforming.

Special thanks to Anne Arden McDonald (who took many of these great photos), Stan Narten and Margaret Vendryes for their invaluable help during this weeks installation.

The Artist

Nicholas Fraser(b. 1969, Lakenheath, United Kingdom)

Nicholas Fraser's projects combine and recast texts and phrases from sources elevated and mundane. He explores our compulsion to communicate and the gap between what we intend to say and what's expressed. Often site specific and highly ephemeral, his work draws connections between histories and issues of the moment, making us aware of our position in a wider continuum.

Fraser began filming storefronts in 2010 for the ongoing project Fronts, collecting a comprehensive video-based, web accessible lexicon that also functions as a manifold portrait of contemporary street-scapes. He earned his BFA at the Atlanta College of Art (1995) and his MFA at SVA (2008).
