Alien Nation

2018

Cardboard box, packing tape, paper, resin, LED lights, batteries, Advil, banana peel, seeds, film, scissors, mylar, wood table.

 

“Alien Nation” is a package ready for shipment to a colony site on another planet. It crudely compiles mundane objects of everyday life to suggest the obsolete utility of our constructed world. Rather than the grand exhibitions of power associated with Manifest Destiny, Alien Nation's rudimentary nature looks critically at the failures, horrors, and futility of colonialism.

 

"Alien Nation" on view at Slicing, Burning, Boiling at Parasol Projects, New York.
