Site-specific installation: photographic print on wallpaper, 16’ x 18.5’, 2015

Fair Play is site-specific photomural mapped onto a gallery wall and bench. It critiques the American obsession with safety and shows a makeshift playground built inside artist’s home. A group of kids are depicted playing with materials considered “dangerous”: mud, fire, raw wood, and rope.  The installation presents an absurd image of "free-play" at home. This work was shown at bäckerstrasse4 Gallery, Vienna, Austria, 2015.
