Artist Dan Finsel invites us into his studio in Chatsworth, CA. Instead of a straightforward video interview, we had quite the experience, as you can see. The work of Dan Finsel centers on the character "Dan Finsel," a perversion of the artist's "authentic" personality. "Dan Finsel's" overarching narrative is that subconsciously he is caught in a reverse Oedipus complex with the actress and artist Farrah Fawcett, who represents his Oedipal mother. In The Space between You and Me (2012), Finsel reinterprets the collaboration between Fawcett and the artist Keith Edmier. In 2000 the two created sculptures of each other, and the catalogue documenting the project served as Finsel's source for a re-creation of specific process shots in video and a reinterpretation of the sculptures. The narrative/mythology of the video is constructed around the actors' personalities, their relationships with each other, and their relationships to their characters. The actors take turns filming each other, mirroring the Edmier-Fawcett relationship. In this work Finsel takes the concept of reinvention and role-playing in new directions, challenging viewers to figure out who the real Dan Finsel is and what his real traumas are.[...]
