ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the works of Adam Putnam concerning the out-of-studio efforts. One of his works is "Untitled (Psychic Power), 2000," a video where special effects transform the body into an aberration, which invokes the cursed space of Medieval witchcraft of the 19th century cabinet of curiosities. In the late 1990's, he worked on a series of performances that were documented in photographs that resemble old pictures of haunted houses in which he attempted to stuff himself into furniture.
