Making of The Arrest- hands up, hand out.
Put your hand in the air and jump and jump / Dig it up and down / watch the plates shake / silicone bit head snake / Pump to the right and pump to the left / Throw the coin / five gourde toss / Departing birds / Hiding to bite, chew and swallow / Bag men eating, gas men laughing / Converse and ketch ass stepping / Laocoon and crapaud dance / watching the coin drop / Terrazzo and camouflage balls / Looking like a red dot but it’s not. - See more at: http://arcthemagazine.com/arc/2013/11/the-arrest-hands-up-hand-out-opening-reception-at-the-betsy-south-beach-hotel/#sthash.bkutizbw.dpuf

Substation Card 1 / Johannesburg

Substation card 1 
Since I was given this archaic object, I have been wondering about how education sometimes gives us the language to articulate  and even the countenance to accept the random conditions created by those who simply have the money to do what they want? I think of the outrage being expressed by young people occupying various financial districts around the world. It is a device to brush crumbs from a table. I thought it would be interesting to use the lino cut and Century Schoolbook type with creole - like grammar to make the unfamiliar object and the language fit.
The Substation Residency Dislocating the Studio is a series of residencies featuring local and international  cultural practitioners, structured as a challenge to the space  of the studio / gallery.
