Description

"For me, the words are very displaced. Like cultural displacement with performance, in painting it’s material displacement, object displacement...For example, I’ve come to appropriate music and Vita Coco coconut water as symbols of displacement. Coconut water has been incredibly well marketed as a tropical drink that comes from parts of the world like Hawaii and the Caribbean. In metropolitan cities it has a certain message of healthy lifestyle attached."
