American School DesKKK, 2022

This piece is an almost 8’ tall by 12’ long school desk made entirely of 8.5” by 11” printer paper and wheatpaste. In many under-resourced schools in the United States, printer paper is the only resource available for creative outlets. The two main supports at the front of the desk protrude from the structure, forming klan-like robes with cut-out eye holes. Although larger-than-life, the fragility of this structure is glaring. The whiteness of the paper reflects the skin of those who deny any intentional systemic failures exist, as well as the whiteness of klan robes.
