DOMESTIC INSECURITY

In April 2003, in response to the invasion of Iraq, a group of seven Maine artists formed the 3 Monkeys collective, which presented the installation DOMESTIC INSECURITY. The original installation was exhibited in the window of an abandoned department store in Waterville, Maine and went on to be included in the New England / New Talent Fitchburg Biennial of 2004.The artists of the collective used toys, food, television, magazines and interior décor to create an identifiable and ‘homey’ tableau. Our goal was to present an installation that would point out the absurdity of the policies for Homeland Security, and the neglect of domestic realities for the pursuit of an illegal and immoral war, and to satirize the pervasive militarism and fear on which the Bush administration hoped to base its support. Above all our goal was to do this with satire, irony and sardonic humor.
