Marepe

San Antônio de Jesus, Bahia, Brazil, b. 1970

Cabeca Acustica (Acoustic Head), 1996. Assembled from two aluminum basins that are commonly used in Bahia for washing laundry.

Marepe combined the two basins, creating a hollow volume, and connected another simple kitchen utensil, a funnel of sorts to one end. At the other end, he cut an opening into the volume, large enough for a human head to fit. The object’s immediate use is to amplify sounds, like a megaphone. It is activated in a performative gesture, requiring one person to place the head inside the hollow enclosure, while another person may sing or speak into the funnel. Its transformative potential resides not only in the performative requirement necessary for the work’s success but also in the way in which it enables thinking about a very different use of the most simple of materials.

That would be Chelsea Handler, Dave Grohl (non-electively getting a nose-picking), Andre Balaz, Jordyn Blum, Jennifer Aniston, and Justin Theroux, at the 2013 Vanity Fair Oscar Party.
There are so very many more—exclusive from the Oscar Party photo-booth!—right here.
