Description of artwork
“Doubt-Queueing” is an artwork aimed at being the voice of a voiceless subjugated society. The artwork articulates a group of community members that have stood for so long and remain as strong concrete, holding to reinforcing while it was still in good condition.
The concrete represents the strength of a hoping community. A slight agitation in a queue of promises that seem to have been extended from the year of social equality called democracy. It is time to let go of rotten reinforcing. By doing so does not mean our concrete society has lost its strength, it only means it can make a stand. We are taken advantage of and used as stepping-stones when our votes gave us seconds of fame?
Today we seem to celebrate years of rioting because we are tired of waiting and yet we go back to waiting. This is a waiting we have done so well, and it has become the trademark of our liberation, waiting, hoping for change. This is a long wait for promises made by those who call themselves leaders. Now we wait because we are starting to think maybe we should be so grateful for our freedom to want to be anything more than just voters.
We have walked around with buckets full of hope and we wait, hoping that today a promise made will be fulfilled.
