Esthetics of Eerieness . 1992

+ Audio Visual Arts . Contemporary Art Daily

Henry Flynt’s Esthetics of Eerieness (1992) consists of 68 formatted declarations that seem to aim at something pithy but miss. (They are cracked.) The installation invites the visitor to sit and contemplate them. Flynt assumes that the texts elicit images synesthetically, allowing the plaques to be called paintings with words. Dwelling on them takes the viewer into a derailed headspace. So the piece is vicarious mental derailment offered as an esthetic experience.
