Exhibition: THE SOCRATES ANNUAL, 2017
Only One Way, 2017
UV print on plastic, steel, rubber, and sand
Referencing the advertising slogan of
Mumbai’s Trump Tower, a skewed sign
combines imagery of the good ol’ boys’
thumbs up, signaling a done deal, with an
ampersand from advertising for the 2017
Riyadh Summit celebrating the President’s
meeting with the King of Saudi Arabia.
Around the sign are a series of slumping
body-like silhouettes propped up by severe
steel structures. In Only One Way the tar
figures that tenuously occupy space are
placed in confrontation with those figures of
power who own and monopolize space.
