Verso: Tom Scicluna
Further to the ongoing sq. ft. series that utilizes large-scale decommissioned vinyl billboard tarps, Verso consists of oversized billboard wraps installed back-to-front and composed with consideration to the given Walgreens storefront window spaces. As opposed to featuring explicit image and text, the billboards used in Verso are blank in content and thus emphasize the physical and material nature of the vinyl tarps themselves. Working with the reverse side of used commercial advertising and functioning as a series of manipulated black monochromes – hung, creased, folded, layered, compressed, etc. – Verso references notions of space, materiality, and the conditions of display.
