Press release Gagosian Gallery, New York, USA:

July 27th – August 24th, 2007
Press Release: Gagosian Gallery is pleased to announce “With Full Consent”, Jill Magid’s first solo exhibition in New York, on display at the fifth floor space at 980 Madison Avenue. The show features an array of works linked by the investigation of the emotional and philosophical relationship between “protective” institutions and conventions, and individual identity. A prime example is Lincoln Ocean Victor Eddy, a large-scale multimedia project initiated upon the artist’s return home after living abroad for five years. When an announcement over the subway PA informed everyone that any passenger may be subject to a search “for security reasons” Magid responded by approaching a police officer and asking him to search her. He refused, but she persisted. Ultimately she infiltrated his world – to a degree – Lincoln Ocean Victor Eddy: police code for “love.”

This poster refers to an action Jill Magid called “Rhinestoning Headquarters”. She managed to get a permission to ornament four exterior surveillance cameras in police colours at the Headquarters of Police in Amsterdam, 2002.

System Azure Security Ornamentation is my company I invented in order to convince the Amsterdam Police Department to hire me on, as Head Security Ornamentation Professional, to ornament it’s publicly displayed surveillance cameras. Rhinestoned covered cams are permanent on the police building. Jill Magid

“Last winter I came back to New York City after living five years abroad. I rented an apartment in Brooklyn and took the subway often. Everyone is in transit, except the officers. I approached one and asked him to search me.”
