Jay Walker: Avatar / IRL

If you attended Miami Art Week, you might have seen Jay Walker‘s Avatar / IRL as part of BaseCamp in Magic City Innovation District, which is in Little Haiti.  

Avatar / IRL is an exterior installation consisting of eight 96” x 96” paper-cut, internally lit stencils.

Walker was inspired to create this installation by Oscar Wilde’s thought: “Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.”Avatar / IRL is an attempt to unpack the relationship between anonymity and honesty, to consider what is in our hearts vs. what is behind our masks. 

If you are in the Miami area in early December, the viewing of Avatar / IRL is free and open to the public at 300-310 NE 61st St, Miami, FL 33137. It is best seen after sunset.

Jennifer Baker is a visual artist working in varied media including: painting, monotype, sculpture, and installation. Her images of Northern Liberties document the changes in that Philadelphia neighborhood over a period of 30 years, from the fires and the wrecking balls of the 1980s and 90s to the runaway construction of the 2000s. Other images explore the central Pennsylvania town of Centralia where an underground fire has burned in a coal seam for over 50 years. These pieces have a roughness and immediacy in their execution that matches their subject matter. Her life size sculptures and installation pieces show another side of her interests, and most recently she has been working on a series of drawings documenting her life in the time of coronavirus. All of these pieces have in common an interest in narrative and a sense of place and memory.
