Fear of Becoming the Fool


An installation of horizontally strung segments of barbed wire that connect the opposing gallery walls, beginning at the floor and continuing up to a height of fifteen feet. Each segment of barbed wire has been carefully hand-twisted and coated in Disperse red 9, a transferrable red dye that is used in smoke grenades and theft-protection dye packs. Segments of barbed wire span across the gallery every eight inches, creating an impenetrable border that marks anything with which it comes into contact.

Materials: steel wire, Disperse red 9

Dimensions: 126” x 14’
Straw Gallery: Philadelphia, PA
