I'm an Artist and I Weigh

As they say in pro-wrestling, “The bigger you are, the better you are.” Does an artist’s, like a weight-lifter’s, value depend on his or her physical mass? For her project titled "I'm an Artist and I Weigh", Toronto-based artist Faye Mullen created a series of portraits of fellow artists paired with objects that weigh an equal amount to them. The photographic series deals with themes of the artists’ value in culture and the composition of physical mass.
