Naz Shahrokh | Iranian artist based in UAE 
Spice Wall | 2010
Collected spices and herbs in plastic bags on wall
9 ½ ft x 12 ½ ft (287 cm x 380 cm)Installation at Ghaf Gallery, Abu Dhabi, UAE
"This project is site-specific to the palette of the East, as it is an investigation of spices/herbs found throughout the Gulf region, the Middle East, and North Africa. I began the process of collecting these materials in Egypt, but the source of inspiration derives from a visit to Iran in 1995 where I had for the first time experienced the mounts of spices found at the local bazaar in a town called Rascht (where my mother is from).
The process of collection of spices took many years until I was at a place where I could finally begin assembling the work. The formal framework in this project is appropriated from Ellsworth Kelly, as the vertical rainbow is inspired by his work. The plastic bags that house each spice/herb is site-specific to Abu Dhabi (UAE), as these are the bags in which one finds the local spices sold in.”-artist statement

Zheng Guogu | China
Ten thousand customers No. 237/10 000 | 2005
“With his as-yet unfinished photographic work, Ten Thousand Customers, Zheng Guogu provokes an elitist art system. His photographs are individual works, but he is continually producing them to form a planned series of ten thousand. Despite undergoing an elaborate process of creation, they possess certain aspects of mass-made commodities. Up-to-date TV images are blended with negative-sized photos of models of small toy cars; afterwards, they are cut up and carefully re-assembled. This creates blurred photos that provide ironic commentary on the flood of media stimuli - as well as their fleeting quality - and the mass production of cheap goods. Buyers cannot make their own selections from the pictures; the photographs are assigned. The buyer then has a share in a complete work of art, without having a sense of its permanence or size.”-x

It’s Test Day, Tiger Turcotte

It’s time for the second graders to take a big test, and Tiger is ready with his lucky pencils! But the trickiest question of all turns out to be one about Tiger himself: what race is he? His mother is Hispanic, and his dad is Black and Meherrin Indian

Tiger Turcotte Takes On the Know-It-All

There are plenty of things that Tiger Turcotte likes about the second grade. His class mate Donna Overton is NOT one of those things. She’s a mean, bossy know-it-all. And lately, she’ trying hard to make Tiger mad. Tiger might decide to fight back, but who’s to blame if they both get in trouble? Tiger and the know-it-all will have plenty of time to think about it-in DETENTION!

To Reach | 2012
"To Reach highlights Navarro’s interest in using light and electricity to create works that are at once minimalist and driven by narrative. Installed on the ground, the work invites viewers to interact with it by standing on it or looking into it.”-x
