Your Hero is a Ghost comprises a large-scale sculpture and sound work and converts the entire SculptureCenter courtyard into a theatrical space. The installation builds on prior work by Lovett/Codagnone that explores role-playing, the ways power is encoded in specific social behaviors and how language constructs and confines identity. The sound piece for the installation is by CANDIDATE, Lovett/Codagnone's band, and uses text and other sound to create a spatial soundscape. The work references cinematic and theatrical texts such as Peter Handke's "Offending the Audience" (1966), a landmark work in that it rejects illusion and makes the experience of the theater the subject of the work.
