House of Cards – Installation – Cut playing card collage
Jack rules the roost whilst the suicide king follows through, joker looms, and the queen turns away. The feudal system of stark hierarchy and heightless ambition rules in the city. Fuelled by the slavery of the populace choked from inflated house prices and national debt. These created from a complete freedom to print obligations (money) at their own convenience, at our own expense.
The skyline of Canary Wharf is peeled to reveal the machinery that lies beneath. Chance, Casino and Cruelty lie at the heart of this bastion of vanity. A plastic Versailles rules high above the lifeblood of London.
