THE SANDWICH PROJECT

endless_shiftIt’s finally upon us! Waiter’s Hourglass will be on display starting tomorrow night at The Art Gallery of Windsor as part of The Sandwich Project. The exhibition considers the ways in which food is a metaphor for economic consciousness. Through the themes of food sustainability, consumerism, and consumption, the exhibition considers the effects of food on a community, a culture’s economic growth, and the overall well-being of the body.

Oh, and did I mention I will be showing alongside Andy Warhol?!

June 1 – September 30, 2018.

The opening reception will take place June 1st, at 7pm.

Also, June 2nd at 1pm I will be participating in a panel. Other panelists include Elizabeth Buset, Dr. Adam Lauder, and Dr. Robert Nelson. We will be reflecting on how we depict food, theorize food, and engage with food in a material fashion. I will be sharing an excerpt from my novel Currency.

Money is in reality just an embodiment, a condensation, a materialization of a network of social relations…    -Slavoj Žižek

After hundreds of hours pushing dyed sand, grain by grain, with a razor blade, the $1000 mandala is done. The evidence of my labour is visible in the missing paint that my butt rubbed off the floor!

Debt+ on NY1

Reporter Ruschell Boone from NY1 stopped by Flux Factory before Debt+ opened to have a look around and a preview of the exhibition. I barely recognize the mandala now that I am in the home stretch!

Be sure to stop by June 24 at 7pm to see the Closing Performances and to see the finished mandala before it is swept away.

Gothamist & Art F City

Debt-Positive-logo-webAccording to The Gothamist, swinging by Flux Factory to see Debt+ is one of 20 Ways To Make Your June Jubilant! Who doesn’t want to be more jubilant?

June 24, 7pm: Closing Performances including the completed $1000 Mandala

The American Mandala I am creating is of the now defunct $1000 bill featuring Grover Cleveland. This amount reflects Flux Factory’s rent when they opened their doors in 1993 – an amount that seems impossibly low today. The $1000 bill was withdrawn from circulation in 1969 due to its use by organized crime. With the rise of electronic transactions, the need for larger denominations has dissipated, yet they remain rare collector’s items worth more than their face value.

Gallery Hours: Thursday–Saturday 12-6pm, June 4-24
