Sex & Politics
Sex & Politics consists of 120 small drawings, the substance of which is culled from dozens of unsolicited bulk electronic messages. Daou cut and strung together the text to form small tableaus or installments. In each of these drawings, as with her paintings, the abstract mark-making gestures of the linguistic and numeric symbols become thought-scapes of shared and dissonant cultural and political experiences. Sex & Politics also includes Strange Bedfellows a collaborative project created by Amy & Greta Byrum in which dual recordings move in and out of synchronized stereo as visitors move around the gallery.
