Fantastic Prayers describes an urban landscape inscribed with memories of lives lived, objects possessed or discarded, and places inhabited. In the eight magical environments of Fantastic Prayers, you, the user, become a visitor who, like an archaeologist, is invited to dig through and uncover fragmentary narratives, laden with physical and psychological histories. Both intimate and game-like, the work features a mesmerising collection of texts by writer/performer Constance De Jong, electronic effigy constructs by artist Tony Oursler, and music and sound by composer Stephen Vitiello - with cameo appearances by Vito Acconci, David Bowie, Kim Gordon, Mike Kelley and many others.
Fantastic Prayers is published and produced by Dia Center for the Arts, New York and Prop Foundation.
