The God Look-Alike Contest (1991-1992)

Thirteen framed images of various dimensions.

In response to advertisements in a classified advertisement paper (‘Loot’) placed by the artist which requested “..artist seeks people who think that they look like God…” images were submitted by members of the public during the course of a year, after discussion with Chodzko.

And as technology has overtaken media like Loot, the open practice you set up
looks all the more prescient.
black and white photographs, colour photographs, colour photocopy, ink on
paper drawing, ad page from the LOOT newspaper, each in artist’s frame, in
thirteen parts
each: 22.1/2 x 17.1/2in. (57 x 44.5cm.)
Executed in 1992-1993
