Your Comfort is Attended by Permanent Violence

DIMENSIONS: 50’ x 11’

MATERIALS: Tape, vinyl and wall paint

(Installation for BRIC ArtFP) Text is divided by a break in the wall, reading YOUR COMFORT IS / PERMANENT on one side and ATTENDED BY / VIOLENCE on the other. One can only read the piece in its entirety by positioning oneself obliquely at either end of the hallway, using the oblique angle as metaphor for the perspective of the marginalized (whether female, queer, racial minority, trans, illegal immigrant, people with disabilities etc.) to understand the structure of power while those in the dominant position cannot.
