Coinciding with her inclusion in the Whitney Biennial, Marilyn Minter has made a series of billboards that tower over the galleries and streets of Chelsea throughout March. Alternately repulsive and seductive (according to Creative Time), the ultra-realistic photographs feature women’s feet splashing through water, mud and–if the title Shit-Kicker is to be believed–excrement. Says Minter:
I’m trying to make an image of what it feels like to look. I want to make a fresh vision of something that’s compelling; something that commands our attention; something that is so visually lush that you’ll give it multiple readings adding your own history and traditions to the layered content. Some things make you feel transcended; others make you feel slimed. I’m constantly looking for that transcendent moment.
