Central Governor, 2010

Gold Leaf, Salt and Saliva, Dimensions Variable


Currently on view at MoMAPS1 Queens, New York.

In a six-month-long performance, 5,000 pounds of salt block was chiseled and the decommissioned iron furnace was slowly covered in gold leaf. The work, which alludes to the alchemical properties associated with salt and gold, is a long-term installation at the museum.
