You Know Where I'm At And I Know Where You're At - Gary Hill & Martin Cothren
New media and video artist Gary Hill happened to meet Martin Cothren (1960–2016), a Native American fisherman from the Yakama Reservation in Washington state, while searching for subjects for his work. Their encounter evolved into an ambivalent friendship of otherness, a 20-year saga poignantly documented in this book through handwritten letters and prose interspersed with Cothren’s own drawings depicting traditional native iconography and images. An account of their common history, both touching and tragic, the story manifests as a non-linear play of living memory as well as a tribute to Cothren, who died homeless shortly after being released from prison.
