Lilly McElroy’s series I Throw Myself at Men is a lively group of photos that has the subject mid-air, still not quite sure if the man-target will respond appropriately and in time. The artist, in addition to combining photography and performance art, is examining how easily we make connections and how much can be at stake if we don’t. Other notable projects include Locations, a series of photos where the subject is asleep in a wisp of a nightdress on the ground of various public sites. And check out the Square, a performance video that shows the artist protecting her turf: a square she has drawn on a busy sidewalk.
