police barricade, paint
144x46x39inches
Adopted as a military term, a barricade creates a barrier or obstacle to control, block passage or force the flow of traffic in the desired direction. I replicated a police barricade often seen on the streets in the US and transformed its structure into a seesaw as a symbol of balance. This work embodies questions of complex relationships between authority and subordination, and nation and citizen in relation to the ideology of democracy.
