Mall Wall (2016), is a monolithic interpretation of a storefront, encasing a faux-marble torso, Borax-concocted ‘crystal’ skull, and miscellaneous found paraphernalia. Its illuminated display evokes Dutch still
lifes and gilded jewelry store displays, and is embedded in a mismatched faux stone slabs, to suggest Capitalism as culture’s most deeply embedded ideology.
This Special Project is presented by R/SF projects (Booth B7).
