ARTIST STATEMENT: It continues to come as no surprise that many
people are grossly abusing positions of power.
Certain individuals are perceived to be immovable
objects—super-powered human beings who
operate with impunity and seem impervious to
challenge and consequence.
This dark cultural and behavioral phenomenon
thrives within a system that has been structured to
keep these individuals powerful and others weak.
When we attack these people, we see the system
start to shift, is actually changeable and that we
can create real change.
Our latest body of work is an examination of, “the
transfiguration of super-powered culture.” We
use superheroes to represent the system and the
people who operate within it. Altering them in a
way that celebrates the idea that their strength is
in question, and by continuing to break them apart
there’s a chance that real change will be made.
