Simultaneously ironic and earnest, the pocket-sized edition Insecurity Card by Simon Evans™ serves as a vulnerable badge of honor, legitimizing an honest admission of one’s sense of security - both on a personal and social level, contrasting abruptly with the supposed protections bestowed upon American citizens at birth. In multiple screens of red, white and blue with a unique hand-applied serial number, the artists utilize the traditional American Social Security Card framework as a stage, alluding to the idea that these fallible safety nets are just theatre, at times a comedy or tragedy.
This print is sold framed.
