Weathered Reports: Trump Surrogate Quotes From the Underground
By Mark Blickley and Amy Bassin
Weathered Reports: Trump Surrogate Quotes From the Underground is a collaboration between writer Mark Blickley and fine arts photographer Amy Bassin. Mark matched quotes from many of history’s most infamous tyrants to Amy’s funereal sculptural portraits to produce spins by DJ Trump surrogates from Genghis Khan to the Koch Brothers. Each quote (report) echoes a distinct Trumpian thought, issued forth from the weathered patinas of plein air cemetery sculptures. They consider the Trump administration to be a graveyard where each day we are forced to attend daily burials of American moral conscience and civil liberties.
Amy and Mark collaborate on text based art collaborations and videos. Their series, Dream Streams, was featured as an art installation at the 5th Annual NYC Poetry Festival held at Governors Island and published in the Columbia Journal of Literature and Art. Their video, Speaking In Bootongue, was recently selected for the London Experimental Film Festival.
