Conform

Conform, wood, metal, clamps, electrical cord, 2016, 94cm x 58cm x 48cm

I am intrigued how institutions, organizations and corporations seem to lose their moral compass when power becomes too enticing. The entity acts in a way that individuals often wouldn’t. These retro institutional chairs represent a stack of conformity that is clamped in place – there is no room for movement or expression. The party line needs to stay the same. An electrical plug attached to the back of the chairs relates to the metaphor of power – but it is now disconnected from the wall making it impotent.
