Only One Way

Socrates Annual at Socrates Sculpture Park, New York


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.
