DESCRIPTION

A group exhibition that holds a mirror up to life in America by examining the weight we give to material items, how we use luxury as a weapon and beauty as a tool. Here, "ROCK" represents any material item that we use to make ourselves stand out, "THEM" being the receivers of our projected self image, those we try to impress.

The exhibition is a reaction to the global manufactured marketing of luxury goods, elitism, and our cultural obsession to obtain things and gain status. We put ourselves through an endless grind to afford the bling and arm ourselves with weapons of fashion. We hunt and want to be hunted. The desire for "ROCKS" is in our cultural DNA. The question is, can we keep up?
