This work is from a series of repeated text portraits that Ken Lum began to pursue in the 1990s. Lum works in a variety of media, including sculptures made from rented furniture, photographic portraits combined with faux corporate logos and texts, mazes made of mirrors inscribed with text, and works that mimic the signage affiliated with working class mini-malls.
