Weekend Edition 26

Jasper Johns

Ventriloquist, 1986

Midwest. Two brothers are working on the farm. They served in the army, in Vietnam. They did because they thought it was the right thing to do. now, it is not cool to talk about it, so they keep quiet about the service. They look like simple people, but they are much more sophisticated. They remind a whale, big powerful, but mostly hidden under the water. Because they are silent, somebody else uses it and put the words in their mouthes.
