Crude cobblings of text, cute animals, weaponry, extreme sports...and much, much more

Takeout Gallery
15 Green St, New London,
an installation by John O’Donnell
Feb 20 — March 17, 2010
Opening reception: Feb. 20, 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Press Release:

"Fuck yeah!" is an expression of delight in imagery or instances that would commonly be deemed perverse, juvenile or absurd. An exclamation of  discovery, it is similar to “Eureka!” but without the implication of utility or import. It is a common response to crude cobblings of text, cute animals, weaponry, extreme sports, food items, 80’s celebrities and other pop cultural motifs found on amateur websites, blogs and YouTube. John O'Donnell's new installation, FUCKYEAH, is an exhibition of video, collage and mini-installation, attempts to produce the momentary euphoria that elicits such a response.  Image: John O'Donnell, "Cornasaur."
