The Holy Bible
Project

David Greg Harth is a New York City based artist working in various media. Many of his projects are time related. One of his current projects is The Holy Bible Project — an important 20-year art work begun April 25, 1997. The art work will be complete on April 25, 2017.

Harth has one Bible that he asks people to sign, and if there is a certain passage they would like to sign, they sign it there, or sign it wherever they would like.

The project will end in 2017. Upon completion of The Holy Bible Project, full exhibits will occur. Locations and dates have yet to be determined. A fully illustrated catalogue will be produced with images from the project along with supporting documentation, letters, photographs, etc.

Harth

David Greg Harth is a visual artist based in New York City. He works across a diverse spectrum of media including performance, video, installation, drawing, photography, and poetry. His work is often time-based and frequently requires public participation. Harth creates unexpected juxtapositions, often employing elements of tension and ambiguous social situations to provoke dialogues on contemporary issues. Harth explores culture, politics, religion, sexuality, celebrities, and consumerism in his work.

A major part of his work involves gathering information, collecting, documenting and producing records of subjects ranging form current world events, political, social and economic, to more specific personal experiences. In most instances, the process of an artwork is just as important as the final work itself. In his performance work, Harth creates unusual tensions in a common environment.

Screenings

Harth is not asking for an “autograph.” He is asking for people to participate in the art work. Harth asks such people as musicians, artists, actors, writers, politicians, activists, intellectuals, poets, athletes, pioneers, entrepreneurs, scholars, designers, directors, filmmakers, icons, etc. He will never sell this art work to an autograph collector, but in the future it will be on exhibition in an art gallery and/or art museum.
