VIGNETTE OF THE HOMELAND TURF, 2018

artificial turf, industrial lotion/food pumps, acrylic, motor oil, petroleum jelly

dimensions variable​

A field of white AstroTurf viscously sprouts industrial pumps while a human-sized with functioning hand-pump naked contains greasy motor oils and petroleum jellies. With a sharply aimed critique at society’s petroleum consumption, the piece elicits their most grotesque qualities.
