“No man can test Flanagan,
Him a the best artist inna the nation”
An interactive installation/sound work referencing the practice by Reggae Djs of enlisting sympathetic singers to endorse them through re-workings of the singer’s hit songs. Transposing this concept into the realm of contemporary art, Flanagan enlisted Reggae legend Linval Thompson to record a unique reworking of one of his tracks as a tongue in cheek boast, telling the world what an incredible visual artist Flanagan is. The song was broadcast via a disheveled dancing baby vulture, triggered by the viewer.
