Peaceful Protest

Photograph by Alison Boulier 2018

Peaceful Protest is a part of Open Season, one of the Ten Different Things projects. http://www.tendifferentthings.ecuad.ca Two sculptural protest signs face each other across the net as the audio of a tennis match is played.  Inspired by “The Battle of the Sexes”, an absurd televised match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs in 1973, the protest signs stand as disembodied agents representing an aesthetic contemplation of opposition, competition and our drive to choose a side. Peaceful Protest is a study of human allegiance to descriptors from the perspective of an abstracted form.
