Parliament
Mixed Media, 2006

The figures on the wooden risers are made of branched coral and annealed steel wire. I got the coral on the beach in Grenada in 2004 and made the piece to commemorate the 2003 elections in which the ruling party lost its monopoly (getting 8 seats) and was almost defeated by the opposition (which got 7 seats). You can see that the group in the foreground are raising their hands, while the ones in the background are refraining.
