La artista y escritora Jill Magid explora la intimidad y el secreto dentro
de los sistemas de poder. Su trabajo se desarrolla a partir de sus propias
experiencias dentro de estos sistemas, incluidos los militares ( al entrar
para incrustar en el Ejército de EE.UU. en Afganistán), la policía (al ser
seguida por el departamento de la policía de Liverpool a través de su sistema
de circuito cerrado de televisión en dicha ciudad), y el servicio secreto
(al ser entrenada como espía comisionada por servicio secreto holandés), una
organización que eventualmente confiscaría su trabajo de la Tate Modern de
Londres.
Islas Chrissy, director de curaduría del Whitney Museum en la ciudad de Nueva
York, observa que “el trabajo de Jill Magid es incisivo en su cuestionamiento
poético de la ética de la conducta humana y las estructuras ocultas políticas
de la sociedad. Sus inteligentes estrategias conceptuales involucran al espectador en una experiencia estética absorbente e intelectual que revierte los
supuestos convencionalismos del poder, clandestinidad, control y el espacio
social. “
Magid ha tenido exposiciones individuales en diversas instituciones , incluyendo la Tate Modern, Whitney Museum of American Art, Berkeley Art Museum,
Tate Liverpool, Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam, Yvon Lambert (París y
Nueva York), Gagosian Gallery, Nueva York.
Artist and writer Jill Magid explores themes of intimacy and secrecy within
systems of power. Magid’s work develops from her own experiences inside these
systems, including the military (being trained to embed with the US Army in
Afghanistan), the police (being followed by the Liverpool Police Department
through it’s city-wide CCTV system), and secret service (being mentored as a
spy after being commissioned by the Dutch Secret Service), an organization
that would eventually confiscate her work from the Tate Modern in London.
Chrissy Isles, Senior Curator of the Whitney Museum, remarks that “the work
of Jill Magid is incisive in its poetic questioning of the ethics of human
behavior and the hidden political structures of society. Her intelligent
conceptual strategies engage the viewer in an absorbing aesthetic and intellectual experience that turns conventional assumptions of power, secrecy,
control and social space inside out.”
Magid has had solo exhibitions at various institutions around the world
including Tate Modern; Whitney Museum of American Art; Berkeley Art Museum;
Tate Liverpool; Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam; Yvon Lambert (Paris and
New York); Gagosian Gallery, New York.

On January 21, 2010, 24-year-old Fausto Cardenas fired six shots from a small
caliber handgun into the air from the steps of the Texas State Capitol.
Coincidentally, Jill Magid was present as a witness. Fausto’s motivations
still remain unknown. In Failed States, Magid draws connections between
Fausto’s futile and tragic act and Goethe’s nineteenth-century epic poem,
Faust. Magid mines Faust for thematic connections and develops a means
of performative exhibition, treating the gallery as a stage to be read.

pistola de bajo calibre al aire desde la escalinata del Capitolio del estado de
Texas. Coincidentalmente Jill Magid estaba presente. Las motivaciones de Fausto
siguen siendo desconocidas. En Estados Fallidos, Magid traza conecciones entre el
acto futil y tráfico de Cárdenas y el poema épico del siglo XIX de Goethe, Fausto.
Magid siembra Fausto de conecciones temáticas y desarrolla un método para una
exhibición performativa, utilizando la galería como un escenario para ser leído.

Tooley, A Tragedy , 2012
(video still) 5 channel video installation, 13:47min
The Status of the Shooter is the search for a body amid the moral panic and
institutional response to a school shooting. Late in 2010, Colton Tooley, a
math student at the University of Texas at Austin, wearing a ski mask and
armed with an AK-47, walked through campus firing shots into the air and
ground. Seemingly without intention to hurt anyone but himself, Cooley’s
route was completed when he committed suicide in the Comparative Literature
and Poetry section on the sixth floor of The Perry-Castañeda Library.
Magid, who had coincidentally been visiting Austin at this time researching
another highly publicized shooting, made an Open Records Request to the UT
Police Department asking for any information on Tooley’s suicide. In return,
she received a package containing the “dash-cam” surveillance footage recorded by each of the five police officers called to the scene of the crime,
and the recordings of all of the 911 calls related to the incident.
Hoping to gain insight into Tooley’s actions, Magid returns to the fictional
drama, Geothe’s Faust, whose themes have informed her recent body of work.
In the installation, which includes a five-channel video piece, audio works,
and sculptural elements, she has synchronized and transcribed video and audio
footage to reframe the narrative as if written for the public stage.

(imagen de video) instalación de video de 5 canales 13:47min
‘El estado del disparador’ es la búsqueda de un cuerpo entre el pánico moral
y la respuesta institucional a un tiroteo escolar. En los últimos meses del
2010, Colton Tooley, un estudiantre de matemáticas en la Universidad de Texas
en Austin, usando una máscara negra de ski y armado con una AK-47, entró el
campus disparando tiros al aire y el suelo. Aparentemente sin intención de
lastimar a nadie más que a él mismo, la ruta de Cooley se completó cuando se
suicidó en el sexto piso de la Biblioteca Perry-Castañeda en la sección de
Literatura y Poesía Comparada.
Magid, quien coincidentalmente estaba visitando Austin para investigar otro
tiroteo, realizó una solicitud oficial al Departamento de policia local
pidiendo información sobre el suicidio de Tooley. En respuesta, recibió un
paquete que contenía la grabación en video de seguridad de cada uno de los
oficiales de policia que atendieron la emergencia de aquél día, así como todas
las llamadas que se hicieron al 911 desde la escena del crimen.
Intentando
Con la esperanza de obtener una mejor perspectiva de las acciones de Tooley,
Magid va aal drama de ficción de Geothe Fausto, cuyos temas han informado su
reciente cuerpo de trabajo. En la instalación, que incluye una pieza de cinco
canales de vídeo, obras sonoras y elementos escultóricos, se ha sincronizado
y transcrito vídeo y audio para replantear la narrativa como si estuviese
escrita en el escenario público.

Installation View: Closet
Drama, Berkeley Art Museum,
Berkeley CA, USA, 2011
Closet Drama has its roots in present-day events as they intersect with
governmental power. Magid, who oddly enough was visiting Texas to research
snipers, witnessed a mysterious shooting on the steps of the Texas State
Capitol by Fausto Cardenas in January 2010. Nothing is known of Cardenas’s
motivations, but his gesture of shooting into the sky from the Capitol steps—
in full view of security—reads as a tragic and poetic dramatic act. Magid
connects Fausto’s action to Goethe’s Faust, originally written as a “closet
drama,” a kind of intimate reading that functions as a theater of the mind.
In Faust, Magid finds both thematic connections and a form of performative
exhibition, as symbolic and narrative triggers from the play Faust and the
actions of Fausto intermingle.
Jill Magid

Drama, Berkeley Art Museum,
Berkeley CA, USA, 2011
Drama de Closet tiene sus raíces en los acontecimientos de hoy en día cuando
se cruzan con el poder gubernamental. Magid, que curiosamente estaba de
visita en Texas para investigar a francotiradores, fue testigo del tiroteo
misterioso en las escaleras del Capitolio Estatal de Texas de Fausto Cárdenas
en enero de 2010. No se sabe nada de las motivaciones de Cárdenas, pero el
gesto de disparar hacia el cielo desde el Capitolio
a unos pasos de la
seguridad del lugar se lee como un acto dramático trágico y poético. Magid
conecta la acción de Fausto con el Fausto de Goethe, Escrito originalmente
como un “drama de closet”, una especie de lectura íntima que funciona como un
teatro de la mente. En Fausto, Magid encuentra ambas conexiones temáticas y
una forma de exposición performativa.

Developed for the Whitney Museum of American Art’s first-floor Anne & Joel
Ehrenkranz Gallery, A Reasonable Man in a Box takes its point of departure from
the “Bybee Memo”, a controversial 2002 document signed by Jay Bybee, Assistant
Attorney General of the United States Department of Justice’s Office of Legal
Counsel, and de- classified by President Obama in 2009. The document discusses
acceptable methods of “enhanced interrogation” of a high-level Al Qaeda operative, including the use of a confinement box. As Whitney curatorial assistant
Nicole Cosgrove writes in the introductory text, “A Reasonable Man in a Box
explores the perversion of reason, and the malleability of language and law.

The Kosinski Quotes Cockpit, una novela de Jerzy Kosinski, funcionó como mi
guía para ser un ‘colibrí’, un espía tan encubierto que incluso otros espías
no saben de su existencia. Los Hummingbirds toman distintos roles en la
sociedad, incluyendo el de artistas. Las citas fueron escaneadas del libro.
El sistema de color está basado en la práctica del AIVD de resaltar texto
con marcador antes de ser censurado. Esto se mezcló con mi sistema personal
de resaltado.
The Kosinski Quotes Cockpit, a novel by Jerzy Kosinski, functioned as my
guide on how to be a hummingbird, a spy so deep undercover that even the
other spies are unaware of his existence. Hummingbirds take on various
‘public’ roles in society, in- cluding that of an artist. The quotes were
scanned from the book. The color system is based on the AIVD’s practice of
highlighting text in yellow to be censored, mixed with my personal system
of marking.

‘To burn a face’ is the phrase used within the AIVD meaning to expose a

notebooks ̄18 in total ̄and then used these descriptions to burn them. The
neon words are lifted directly from my notebooks, and are in my handwriting.
‘Quemar el rostro’ es una frase utilizada por el AIVD que significa exponer

Trust, 2004 (video still)
DVD, edited CCTV footage and audio, 18 min
In 2004, Jill spent 31 days in Liverpool, during which time she developed
a close relationship with Citywatch (Mer- seyside Police and Liverpool City
Council), whose function is citywide video surveillance- the largest system
of its kind in England. The videos in her Evidence Locker were staged and
edited by the artist and filmed by the police using the public surveillance
cameras in the city centre. Wearing a bright red trench coat she would call
the police on duty with details of where she was and ask them to film her in
particular poses, places or even guide her through the city with her eyes
closed, as seen in the video Trust.

función es la vigilancia de toda la ciudad con el sistema más grande de su
tipo en el Reino Unido. Los videos en su Locker de Evidencias fueron actuados
y editados por la artista y filmados por la policia usando las cámaras de
vigilancia de la ciudad. Utilizando un abrigo rojo brillante, Magid pudo llamar a la policia en turno para darles datos y pedir ser localizada y filmada
en poses particulares o lugares o incluso para guiarla a través de la ciudad
con los ojos cerrados, como se ve en el video Trust (confianza).

Unless requested as evidence, CCTV footage obtained from the system is

had to submit 31 Subject Access Request Forms - the legal document necessary to outline to the police details of how and when an ‘incident’ occurred. Magid chose to complete these forms as though they were letters to
a lover, expressing how she was feeling and what she was thinking. These
letters form the diary One Cycle of Memory in the City of L- an intimate
portrait of the relationship between herself, the police and the city.

— As told to Zachary Cahil
For the 2012 Bucharest Biennale, artist Jill Magid will exhibit her novella
Failed States, which chronicles her experiences as she trained in 2010 to be
an embedded journalist in Afghanistan as well being witness to a shooting at
the Texas state capitol building that same year. An interdisciplinary artist
who engages with institutional structures and notions of intimacy, attempting to materialize phenomena like secrets and risk, Magid’s work encompasses
performance, prints, sculpture, video, and writing. The biennale is on view
from May 25 to July 22, 2012.
WHAT IS A WITNESS AND WHAT IS PARTICIPANT? This is a vital question that
arises in Failed States, a project I began working on in Austin, Texas, which
consists of multiple pieces, such as sculptural components, prints, video,
and sound pieces. The project was inspired by a New York Times article that
examined the connection between snipers and their targets. The writer of that
piece curiously emphasized a kind of intimacy to describe their relationships.
Soon after I began work in Austin, I witnessed a man named Fausto Cardenas
shoot six bullets into sky in front of the Texas state capitol building.
Immediately apprehended, he spent the next eighteen months incarcerated,
charged with a terrorist threat against a government institution. During
the time Fausto was in jail, I was training in Texas with a journalist—named
“CT” in the novella—to embed with the military in Afghanistan, as part of the
the scene and in the press as a witness, if only by coincidence, to Fausto’s
act. Subsequently, I made the decision to remain his witness, flying out for
every hearing, forging an intimate relationship with both the prosecutor and
the defense attorney as a way of better trying to grasp Fausto’s act, for
which he never gave reason. While I was training to be the kind of witness who
goes to a war zone and writes about what transpires there, I was committing
myself to be another kind of witness, one who follows a man and his painfully
slow journey through the US court system long after the press (and public)
have lost interest in him.
The Bucharest Biennale is largely focused on the question of what makes up a
public. Anne Barlow, the curator, is focusing on artists who use research as
means to investigate certain unknowable facets of civic institutions as well
as those who also infiltrate those systems by means of seduction. Generally,
my practice is distinguished by multiple events: The first is performative,
involving experience and research that deepens into a process that serves as
source material for the objects and writing, while the second is contextual,
how and in what forms the materials are manifested for the public. In regard
to the latter, I decided to present Failed States the novella for the first
time, but I was worried and curious about how Failed States, which is focused
around such American themes as gun control, US foreign policy, and journalists embedding with the American military, would translate in the context of
a biennial in Romania. Aiming to resist these issues, I decided to collaborate
with three of the nation’s magazines: Vice, which has a Romanian arm; Taboo,
which is a women’s fashion magazine; and Zeppelin, an architecture magazine.
Each provided briefs on what they wanted for the context of their magazine
and how it would relate to the novella. In a way these magazines act as three
extended venues of the Bucharest Biennale. The book and magazines will be installed as a reading area within this amazing old and decayed building called
the House of Free Press, which was originally built as the media center of
Bucharest and later became the voice of the Communist Party.
For me, writing is a form of drawing; like sketching, it comes immediately
after the experience and the observed situation, allowing me to capture detail when it is fresh. Someone told me this is a romantic way of writing. This
is my process and it is the reason why I am so emphatic that my work is not
fiction. Some people may assume that what I write is fiction, but for me, obviously a relationship or a sensation of a relationship can’t be fact-checked
but all of the historical or social-political markers that I am discussing
can be. It is important to me that what I write is true.

In her essay “Two Paths for the Novel,” the author Zadie Smith argues that,
despite some dalliances, the novel has remained faithful to the conventions
of nineteenth-century realism. “The received wisdom of literary history,”
writes Smith, “is that Finnegans Wake did not fundamentally disturb realism’s
course as Duchamp’s urinal disturbed realism in the visual arts.” For artists, the readymade cast doubt on all the old assumptions—the authenticity of
the individual, the fixity of meaning, humanism’s whole song-and-dance—yet
somehow the authors of novels have carried on unperturbed.
But what if Duchamp had written a novel? Or what about his quickest study?
A tape recording of Factory chatter badly transcribed by teenage typists,
Andy Warhol’s A: a novel, 1968, is the urinal-talisman for this engrossing
exhibition of what curators David Maroto and Joanna Zielinska call “artist
novels.” The coinage’s simplicity belies the difficulty of combining two
disciplines with divergent conceptions of authorship. The curators have assembled a library-like survey of examples, such as Richard Prince’s Why I
go to the movies alone, 1983, and Sophie Calle’s Double Game, 2007, but the
exhibition’s main draw are featured artists who treat their novels as linchpins for multiple-component projects—instances where the novel, once written,
functions as a readymade.
Is a readymade novel meant to be read? Julia Weist, who holds degrees in both
art and library science, wrote her romance novel, Sexy Librarian, 2008, in
order to document the book’s circulation. For her, books are sculptural material, a point she makes explicit with a piece that presents a hundred volumes
ground into dust. By contrast, Jill Magid wants her artwork and nonfiction
novels to receive equal recognition. Ironically, her recent Becoming Tarden,
2009, can’t ever be read in full, since it’s partially censored by the Dutch
Secret Service. The agency had signed off on Magid’s interviewing several of
its secret agents for an artwork, but balked when it discovered she was also
writing a book. The moral of the story may be that eliding the roles of artist
and author remains a provocation.
On view at the Independent Art Fair over the weekend was the above work by
artist Jill Magid, titled Auto Portrait Pending. According to the artist’s
statement;
Jill Magid signs a contract with a company to become a diamond when she
dies. The contract specifies the agreement for her transformation and the
details of her eventual diamond. Upon her death, the diamond will be created
from the carbon of her cremated remains. It will have a round cut, weigh one
carat, and be set in a gold ring setting. Until the diamond′s creation, the
empty ring setting, the corporate contract, the artist’s preamble, and the
Beneficiary Contract constitute the artwork. Auto Portrait Pending awaits a
Beneficiary.
This work challenges the traditional notion that artworks exist as a finished
product, since it exists in the form of an idea and a set of placeholders
until the “eventual diamond” is created.
In this way, the work speaks to many of the themes that our current series,
“Art in the Long View at Lunchtime” explores. For example, at yesterday’s
talk, “Temporality: Lived, Constructed, and Imagined,” we discussed Alighiero
Boetti’s piece 11 Luglio 2023 (1966-1975), a piece in which the artist commissions craftswomen to embroider the date he projects for his own death.
This piece is also a placeholder in some ways; the recorded date is only a
guess or a suggestion of potential significance, which stands in for a factual commemoration.
In both cases, the artists focus on their own anticipated deaths as the source
material for poetic investigations of the long-term significance and evolution of artworks. By working in this way, perhaps the artists offer not only
a new way to consider artworks, but also even a new lens through which to view
such a challenging topic as death.
Join us for our “Art in the Long View at Lunchtime” programs on select Mondays
and Thursday to think more about artworks and concepts such as these!

Jill Magid: Faust 24
LABOR
You just opened a show at Labor in Mexico City.
Yes, it’s called Faust 24 and mainly consists of a piece called Tooley, A
Tragedy, a five-channel video and sound installation and two books. The
story of the piece began in 2010 with a suicide at the University of Austin,
Texas, where I was researching at the time. A student put on a ski
mask and took an AK-47 and went through campus shooting up into the air and
into the ground, basically performing the role of the “school shooter” as
we have come to know “him”. But avoiding shooting at anyone. He then went
to the top floor of the library, to the section for comparative literature
and poetry, and killed himself. I had been working a different body of work
about another very public shooting in Austin at the state capitol, in which
I compared the shooter, whose name happened to be Fausto, to Goethe ’s Faust.
Then I heard about this other shooting. So I made an open-records request to
the Austin police department, and they sent me five DVDs of video evidence,
and from that material I built the piece Tooley, A Tragedy.
The idea of absence comes up repeatedly in your work.
Either I’m aware of an absence, or it’s some kind of pregnant void that I’m
drawn to. With Tooley, A Tragedy for instance, the five DVDs contained dashcam footage from the five police cars that rushed to the library. The video
shows the view through their windscreens, and there are multiple layers of
audio: the cops’ voices, the police radios, the carstereos. They converge
on the scene, and then the cops run inside the library. The video stays put
because it’s a dash-cam, but the audio travels inside. So you never see the
shooter, the suicide, or the body. You never see the police find him. You
just hear all of the activity surrounding what you don’t see. In working
through this footage, I kept feeling like I was somehow looking for the body,
in a metaphorical way. That is when turning to Goethe again seemed appropriate to me. I looked back into Faust, and there ’s this part at the beginning
when Faust is frustrated that he ’s never going to understand nature and the
universe the way God does, so he decides to commit suicide by drinking a
vial of poison. I started relating this library scene from Faust to the scene
in the university library. The booklet that I wrote for the piece Tooley, A
Tragedy is a transcription of the police tapes, reformatted as an epic drama
in the style of Faust, with characters, staging and dialogue. The moment
that Faust decides to raise the liquid to his lips coincides in the booklet
Tooley, A Tragedy with the moment the police yell, “Contact!” because they
have seen the body.

JILL MAGID
‘With Full Consent’
Gagosian Gallery
980 Madison Avenue, at 76th Street
Through Aug. 3
At 34, Jill Magid is teaching the old dog of Conceptual Art some new tricks.
Ms. Magid, who lives and works in Brooklyn and Amsterdam, seems motivated by
an urge to infiltrate and personalize, if not sexualize, the anonymous social
and technological systems that surround us. She pursues an idiosyncratic kind
of body art descended from artists like Vito Acconci, Adrian Piper and Sophie
Calle.
Ms. Magid’s impressive New York debut includes “Lincoln Ocean Victor Eddy,” a
video and series of photographs accompanied by a haunting novella. All record
her five-month friendship with a New York City police officer. She initiated
it by asking him to search her (he didn’t) and then shadowing him during his
night shift, usually on subway platforms in Manhattan and Brooklyn. The best
part of the work is the quietly heart-rending novella, a kind of tunnel vision of two people moving along parallel tracks while the city hums around
them. The relationship is never consummated, but “Lincoln Ocean Victor Eddy”
spells love.
The video “Trust,” part of a larger work called “Evidence Locker,” provides
a sense of the closed-circuit action implied in “Lincoln Ocean Victory Eddy.”
It involved Ms. Magid’s befriending some of the men running the citywide
surveillance system in Liverpool, England. She persuaded them to guide her
(using an ear bud) as she walked along the streets with her eyes closed, while
videotaping her movements. As you watch a figure in a red coat (the artist)
and listen to a man’s voice quietly dictating her every move, it doesn’t take
long to understand what is going on or to feel like an intruder into a briefly
intimate, protective form of surveillance.
In “Auto Portrait Pending,” Ms. Magid contracts to have her cremated body
turned into a diamond and mounted on a gold ring after she dies. (The display
includes the ring, its box and the contract.) And in “The Salem Diamonds,”
she proposes making a memorial the same way, using the unclaimed ashes of inmates at an Oregon mental institution. These works also personalize a system
— the making of artificial diamonds from cremated remains — while inventing
a highly portable form of burial and remembrance. But they don’t reverberate
with the richness that Ms. Magid conjures up in the here and now.
