YELLING CLINIC
an artist collaborative

   

In her 1859 book Notes on Nursing: What It Is and What It Is Not, Florence Nightingale wrote, ”Little as we know about the way we are affected by form: by color and light, we do know this, they have an actual physical effect.  Variety of form and brilliancy of color in the objects presented to patients are actual means of recovery.  People say the effect is only on the mind.  It is no such thing.  The effect is on the body, too.” We additionally believe yelling can help.

Sunaura Taylor uses her background as a disabled person whose disability was caused by US military pollution and her life long dedication to animal ethics, to explore issues of value, suffering and person-hood. Her painting Culled Male Chicks in a Dumpster, represents hundreds of newly hatched male chicks, who have been discarded and left to die. They are of no use to industry and so they are seen as valueless. Her drawings explore these and similar issues in a more satirical and comical way. Many of these works expose the parallels between how animals and disabled people are treated, metaphorically co-opted, valued and devalued.

Ehren Tool is a former Marine and son of a Vietnam Vet, makes and decorates cups. He will be showing Charlie Company. The cups are displayed in units; fire teams, squads, platoons, and companies. If the unit sells it lives forever as art, as a unit. If the unit does not sell it is redeployed and eventually the officers are decommissioned and the unit is disbanded. The cups die alone as fun time hobby craft.
