Derek Fordjour at Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis


Maybe its people become decoration, subsumed to the overarching command of DESIGN.

Hands up comforts those in power. "The repair and disrepair of the canvas reflects the conditions of abandonment and scarcity present in the artist’s upbringing in the South." The hardship that is reclaimed like wood for collectors.
