Site and Source, Azimuth Projects. Chicago 2013
Site and Source is a solo exhibition that began when I was artist-in-residence at Spudnik Press in Chicago from March through May 2013. The works were made from found objects using fencing taken from an abandoned lot near my home. Chicago vacant lots are a common part of life on the west and south side of Chicago. It is a clear visual difference from other parts of the city. The physical expressions in these locations reflect the social, political, and financial networks that bind the community or divide us from one another. This urban space has many implications in everyday life in the actions one takes, in the decisions one makes, and the crisis we weather. Site and Source ran from October 4th to 25th, 2013 in the Spudnik Press Annex 821 W Hubbard St, Chicago, IL 60622.
