WhiteBox and Corp Cru present
January 25 – February 28, 2017
Opening Reception: January 25 @ 7 pm
Corporation is a series of 50 original mixed media works that features Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen as the subject of an immersive and familiar game exhibit where players draw cards and take pieces from her.
Corporation expresses Chairman Yellen’s daunting task of balancing economic equilibrium and all of its inherent implications in the pursuit of economic freedom for corporations and consumers in a hilariously expressed, highly provocative parody of the cost of living confined within a traditional and familiar board game.
As chief of the largest, most powerful monetary institution on earth, Chairman Yellen faces pressure from Consumers, Congress, the White House, the Banking Industry and the Corporate world.
As players draw “credit” and “debit” cards to take pieces of her, she is rewarded with beauty and an opportunity for pleasure.
The “Debit Cards” and “Credit Cards” are a series of twenty four 24” x 42” canvas renderings shown from two perspectives: the haves and the have nots.
Each Credit and Debit Card shows an image of the corresponding twelve sculptures that represent elements of the cost of living as well as controversial public and social issues. Players have the chance at freedom from economic enslavement by successfully removing one of the twelve 8”x 10″ polished aluminum sculptures from Chairman Yellen’s body on the 8’ x 4’ mixed media game board.
Touching the metal sides of the cavity containing the sculptures with the 24” tweezers plays a unique sound and lights up Chairman Yellen in a manner that reveals the message behind the works.
Each sculpture is also replicated in polished bronze and mounted separately on black marble.
Corporation is a provocative, immersive expression of socioeconomic and political issues and provides players with an opportunity to reclaim themselves from economic enslavement, as Chairman Yellen and her Federal Reserve Board of Governors attempt to balance the largest economy in the world.
Fister is a series of a growing number of politically charged and provocative pieces depicting the establishment’s positioning of the socioeconomically enslaved global citizen in uncompromising positions.
