Part shaman, part huckster, Hammons has sold snowballs on an uptown sidewalk; created elegant, slightly less ephemeral sculpture from chicken bones and human hair gathered from a Harlem barbershop; and exhibited a billboard portrait of Jesse Jackson in whiteface outside the 1990 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. Both raucous and haunting, Phat Free is the artist's only video.
