Work from Aaron Wilder's "Expletive" project is included in the exhibition. This is an experiment in the aestheticization of derogatory labels. Wilder employs vividness, repetition, and the form of text to disempower slurs used everyday by obscuring the word through the stacking of its letters on top of each other. What remains is an aesthetic and geometric arrangement of shapes. Started as ink and pastel sketches on colorfully patterned pieces of paper, this project has evolved into an installation effort including large wall and floor vinyl pieces, simulated stained glass, and oversized wooden block sculptures as well as a limited edition zine.
