The Competition Series
For the PLAY exhibition Annette Isham and Zac Willis present a multimedia installation that explore competition, failure, and interaction. Isham and Willis compete against one another in a 40-yard field goal challenge, a Missouri tomahawk throw challenge, and spear throwing. The performances position the artists in a head to head battle where they are at odds with one another and themselves. The installation is comprised of promotional posters, portraits, relics of the competitions and three videos that document the meets. Each competitor is followed through warm ups, their attempts at the challenge, and post interviews. Their narrative during the rivalries is reflective of their natural love for competition and their passion for victory.
