About Chad Person

Through various mediums, Chad Person creates bold indictments of America’s hawkish, capitalist politics and its cultural hegemony. His “Tax Cut” series of collages depict subjects such as U.S. military vehicles—tanks, ships, and planes—from cut-up dollar bills; he then deducts the money used to create the works from his taxes, with the aim of absorbing contributions to government defense spending. He also creates giant inflatable sculptures and produces performance works. Thirst is a 15-foot rendering of the Mobil Oil Pegasus, which appears to lie in a black pool of crude oil, offering a stark critique of corporate enterprise. For RECESS (Resource. Exhaustion. Crisis. Evacuation. Safety. Shelter.), Person remodeled his home in New Mexico into an “apocalypse” bunker, amassing items such as signal flags and a recycled solar oven and filming himself in the space with a live feed transmitted to a gallery space.

American, b. 1978, Marinette, Wisconsin, based in New Mexico
