Checks & Balances

On view at The Arts Club of Chicago until February 24th

This neon sculpture, which stays lit all day and all night in the Arts Club window, references the ubiquitous neon signs seen across the country in check-cashing stores, reflects both the tenuous nature of the American project of self rule through the lens of businesses that thrive on usury of Americans at the margins of society. In this performance, the weekly ritual of going to church and cashing a check are called forth is a call-and-response for our contemporary moment, which asks more questions than has answers.
