Shana Hoehn

Boggy Creek

Hoehn’s video and sculpture installation, Boggy Creek, is based on popular culture and mythology surrounding bigfoot monster sightings along the Texas-Arkansas border. Hoehn is interested in conflating “the real” as it is manifested in folklore, social constructions, and digital manipulations within the video’s images and props. This installation will be a traveling, guerilla-style show in and between Houston and Texarkana. Projected images, powered by Hoehn’s car, will be accompanied by a boat-sculpture strapped on the car’s roof. Similar to how bigfoot creatures move along creeks, the exhibitions will appear near small waterways.
