Status Quo explores the notion of identity as commodity. The exhibition continues McIver’s exploration of consumer identity in the era of hyper-capitalism. The work in the exhibition (predominantly in neon, steel and concrete), transposes digital subject matter into physical objects to highlight the tangible economic value placed on our thoughts and desires.
