    Start Together, 8/19/2016 - 9/8/2016
    Chicago Artists Coalition 217 N Carpenter St
    Chicago, IL
    Start Together features a labyrinth constructed with lumber and the orange construction fencing that litters Chicago’s West Side. The structure’s form is indebted to Hélio Oiticica’s Penetrables (1961), which expands on the modernist ideals that prioritize color and form as communicative tools.

    This project builds on previous investigations of the fence, a ubiquitous structure that is treated here as a complex symbol for the city and its many contradictions, representing a border between public and private, wealth and poverty. The fence indicates what is built, vacant, or developing, embodying a script for social relations and demarcating zones of ownership and belonging.
