This piece is based on a variation of the question, what keeps us safe/what makes us feel safe? Which is more powerful, big, blocky NYPD cement barricades or a clove of garlic in our pocket or around our neck?
What is the play between superstition and belief? The work is a continuation of the artist’s exploration of the role of luck and amulets in each of our lives.
