Black Power Naps, Chill Pill (Rockabye Baby), 2022, Plywood, paint, mattress, dye, cotton gauze, Kanekalon hair, 16.4 x 9.8 feet
The chill pill is a sculptural installation that features a wooden round rocking bed directly underneath a silver hoop of the same size suspended above it. The hoop is draped with brightly colored pieces of artificial hair, suggesting a kind of canopy. The bed is low to the floor with broad rockers; it is covered in sheets and pillows made of fabric hand dyed by the artists in vivid colors. We invite you to climb on the bed and engage in a reclamation of rest; please see the gallery assistant seated at the front desk if you would like help climbing onto and off of the bed.
