This artwork brings back to life a depiction of the White House in ruins from the 1940s-50s when the building underwent extensive renovation and expansion during President Truman’s administration.
The whole series shows images of the interior of the building, a container of political power and decision-making, undergoing a dramatic transformation. The work symbolically unveils the decadency of a state that shows itself as powerful to the world. The image of a destroyed White House gains meaning with recent events in U.S Capitol. It makes the apocalyptic possible.
