This limited-edition, hand-cast sculpture has been specially produced by the artist in conjunction with the Art in General fall 2018 New Commission exhibition Joseph Buckley: Traitor Muscle.
Buckley’s practice centers on the relationship between grief and postcolonialism and investigates everyday systems of oppression and control in contemporary life. The artist employs a range of visual and cultural references that ask us to deeply consider society’s divisions and fractures, using the medium of sculpture to investigate the psychic technologies that enable them.
