More about the artwork

Cady Noland’s installation “Deep Social Space” recalls the detritus from a typical American barbecue: a kettle grill, beer cans, burger buns, an American flag, chips, and a Marlboro trash can, as well as some signifiers of rural America, such as saddles and blankets for horses. But the mood is unsettling, even aggressive. Not only do the carefully arranged objects look unused, almost clinically clean, but the scaffolding encloses the ensemble and seems to prevent free movement. If nothing else, the handcuffs reveal the ominous side of this supposedly harmless setting. What remains are the elements that govern our daily coexistence: consumption and advertising, barriers and fences. The objects can, in a rather brutal way, be understood as signifiers of social seclusion and exclusion.
