Jason Martin in the New York Times
The New York Times talked to Jason Martin about his Power Animals installations, videos and performances as part of a longer piece on Brooklyn’s Microscope Gallery and the live birth that recently happened there. A version of this article appeared in print on October 30, 2011, on page MB1 of the New York edition with the headline: For a Gallery at the Edge, Fame Is Born Tuesday. Jason’s Power Animals Systems NYC Windows installations run through January 14, 2012.
THESE risks include screenings and performances by emerging local artists, like Jason Martin. Mr. Martin, 38, makes what he calls “power animal videos,” in which he dresses as a wolf or dog and conducts séance-like rituals intended to contact the half-animal, half-human creatures that visited him in dreams as a child.
