Sometimes it just takes a different perspective or a closer look to actually see how powerful and meaningful a mundane or repetitive action can be. Francis Alys, a Belgian interdisciplinary artist, does this with Guards, a mutlit-media exhibition focusing on 64 of the Queen of England's guards, which will go on display on December 15 at the University of Michigan Museum of Art. You probably can't find more robot-like humans than these guards, but take a look at them under Alys magical light, and you'll find a statement that transcends the normal just-accept-it, don't-think-about-it type of mindset. 525 S.
