Collapsible Scissor Gates (Red), 2016, dyed MDF, 8X10X10 feet
“Collapsible Scissor Gates (Red),” takes the form of commercial security gates commonly found throughout Los Angeles. Carved entirely from dyed red MDF, down to the threads on the screws. The fully articulable sculpture is installed in the main corridor of the gallery, blocking access to the majority of the space. As a result, the sculpture disrupts the flow of traffic, forcing a detour around the building.
