UNDERSTAND VIDEO ART, 2018
In 1996, Dana Wyse began her best known artwork, a pill-themed installation called Jesus Had A Sister Productions.
Drawing on the fantastical promises of advertising, infomercials, and pop pyschology, Wyse's pharmacy offers the possibility of instant personal change.
It is a philosophical work-in-progress to which Wyse adds new elements each year.
Jesus Had A Sister Productions is a fictional pharmaceutical company specializing in quick-fix medicines, dehydrated space food, discount time travel, spy electronics, transistor radios, invisible things, sneaky life hacks, Venus Fly Traps (when available)…and pocket-size weapons for the revolution. Incorporated in 1786 by the artist's great great great grandfather, Jesus Had A Sister Productions has not shuttered its factory doors a single day in over two centuries. Despite the existential winds...
Helping you to create your own reality. Since 1786.
