Child’s Chimney is a small-scale version of Ohio Chimney. In this work The bricks are modular units similar to children’s building blocks, and the piece is open through the center making it possible to see down to the floor. Like its full-scale counterpart, the materials in this work belie the reference, and bringing a young child’s perspective to the context further complicates the contradiction that is central to the piece. Child’s Chimney was created for the traveling exhibition “American Pluralism,” organized by the Department of Art at The Ohio State University, and presented in Antwerp, Glasgow, Helsinki, London, Trondheim (Norway), Dresden, and Flagstaff (Arizona).
