Hello!Plan at Marshall Arts, Memphis

Solo exhibition at Marshall Arts, Memphis, Tennessee, November 14-December 4, 2014

This work is the result of my taking occupation of a studio in a peculiar set of abandoned buildings in the California Sierra foothills, the site of a former drug-rehab program-turned cult (Synanon), and after that the location of a Muslim group from Oakland and their charter school (Baladullah), and now vacant and vandalized.

Reflecting on how these varied histories built over one another on this site, Hello!Plan is a sites-specific installation, of accumulating sites, changing according to each location it is fitted to, and taking those changes with it as it develops. The decidedly artificial facsimiles of particular walls are fitted to other walls, elsewhere, picking up artificialized elements from each spot before moving on, thus piling up a record of changes.

The glass pieces utilize broken window glass from the vandalized buildings, and lettering and words and school plans, from the walls, windows and floors of the abandoned Baladullah charter school. Disparate intentions conflate to create entirely artificial fragments suggestive of natural ones. One of these intentions is my response to "flow," in the form of patterns suggestive of woodgain; another is vandalization of the buildings; another, the original aspirations behind the wall messages and school plans.
