Elvis Machine


One visit to contemporary Graceland will confirm to the most die hard Elvis fan: the artist is no longer a person he is a brand, the house is no longer a home it’s an amusement park, and the objects in Elvis’s life are no longer utilities they are currencies to be hoarded and sold. Elvis Machine rips the real Elvis objects out of nostalgia’s hands and molds them into new mythologies, challenging the veneer of kitsch and exploring our deep need to collect.

Elvis machine premiered at  Fusebox Festival in April 2013.
