Jeremiah Day

Jeremiah Day is an American artist living between Berlin and Amsterdam. His work is on show till February 23 in Amsterdam where Ellen de Bruijne Projects presents 'The Fall of the Twelve Acres Museum' an exhibition of new work. In a new slide-show installation, Day re-visits the landscape of New England through the vantage of the historic developments and recent political struggles of its native population – the Mashpee Wampanoag Indians. Interviews with Earl Mills - Chief Flying Eagle of the Wampanoags, stories of the recent political struggles of the tribe, and the music of a short-lived rock band from Cape Cod form the audio track, a counter-point to the drifting glimpses of landscapes presented in 6x6cm projected transparencies. The images weave the inter-relationship between local history and world history, fragmentary glimpses of sites of epic meaning, and those of more anonymous historical forces.
