Secret Security Clearance (2004)

In Secret Security Clearance, I created a top security environment where individuals had to pass through armed military personnel and complete a Secret Security Clearance form in order to view artworks – which addressed the deeper issues of sex, power and domestic abuse – hidden behind the gallery walls. Questions on the clearance form included highly detailed probes for personal information, as well as inquiries into food and sexual preferences. Within six small rooms hidden behind the gallery walls, those who secured clearance encountered drawings, videos, photos, as well as a live prisoner, tied up nude and forced to eat pomegranates.
