Seth Ferris, Multiple Bodies (Surplus, Surplus), October 2017.

For this Elsewhere installation, Ferris made filmed himself performing repetitive rituals as homage to the service of many Americans during WWII.

The overall installation, ‘Surplus, Surplus’ consists of a rearrangement of Elsewhere’s army surplus collection. Asking questions about how he could manipulate this potent material embedded with violence, control, and power while losing nothing, he piled the material into itself pointing out that it this material belongs to itself and its history is embedded within the material.
