Untitled (Flag 2), 2017 by Josephine Meckseper

Her flag is a collage of an American flag and fragments of an earlier work of hers entitled “Goodbye to Language.” A black dripped color field resembles a United States map, divided in two. The black and white sock takes on a more symbolic meaning of polarization, but also stands for creating a dialogue about our collective future and the one of our planet.

 

About Josephine Meckseper

Josephine Meckseper was born in Germany. She uses commercial forms of presentation to demonstrate inextricable influences of consumer culture on society. Meckseper melds the aesthetic language of modernism with the formal language of commercial display, combining them with images and artifacts of historical undercurrents and political protest movements. Meckseper was recently commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit to create a new work for their exhibition 99 Cents or Less.
