Intuit is pleased to host artist in residence, Kevin Blythe Sampson, over a two week period as he creates a site-specific vehicle in Intuit’s Main Gallery using recycled materials. The sculpture will evolve over Sampson’s two week residency as Intuit encourages the general public to interact with Sampson while he is creating.
The sculpture is a boat-like vehicle that will be built in three distinctively different sections. The front will represent major corporations, the middle of the boat will contain objects that represent the liberal elite and the rear section of the boat will represent the working poor and homeless. “After thinking about the current state of politics in the United States and the current national conversation on civility, I have decided to build an environment that contains a symbolic vessel that will be powered by the wind that is blowing across the world,” says Sampson. The title of the exhibition, An Ill Wind Blowing, is in reference to the history of protest, the state of America today and the popular song ”Blowin’ in the Wind” by Bob Dylan.
