Sites and Source, Spudnik Press Residency & Azimuth Projects.
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 where 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 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 so many implications in everyday life in the actions one takes, in decision one makes and the crisis we weather. Site and Source, opens Friday, October 4 th, and runs through October 25th in the Spudnik Press Annex 821 W Hubbard St, Chicago, IL 60622.
