The Dispossessed


The Dispossessed is a commissioned public sculptures consisting of a pair of bent and twisted chain-link fencing. Reflecting on the role of fences as a boundary making device and as a means to criminalize or control the movement of particular bodies, The Dispossessed re-envisions these divisive constructions by deforming and displacing the fence from its partitioning function. With the decorative flair of auto body paint they optically shift in the sunlight and perform as contorted figures in the landscape.

The Dispossessed, 2018, steel, aluminum, and chromaflair paint. Commissioned by FRONT International: Cleveland Triennial.
