Jeffrey Vallance: The Blinky Trifecta
The Blinky Trifecta consists of the book, the flying disk, and the bumper sticker. It‰۪s like getting the bumper sticker for free. You‰۪ve got a bumper, right?
Blinky, the quintessential conceptual artwork of the 1970s, is the seriocomic brainchild of artist Jeffrey Vallance, who has taken the concept and processes of documentation to their most absurd conclusion. 2008 marks the thirty-year anniversary of Jeffrey Vallances Blinky project.
The original Blinky (1978) was a piece of meat (chicken) Vallance purchased at a local supermarket. What followed was a trip to the Los Angeles Pet Cemetery to see if they would bury a piece of meatthey did, and held a subsequent burial ritual for a dead pet, all documented by Vallance. Vallances straightforward narrative and simple black-and-white photos offer a striking commentary on our society, our treatment of animals, and death.
