Over time, the relentless whipping would beat the flag to a fray. This work, Trinket, is currently on view alongside an exhibition of new and recent work by the Chicago-based artist, who said: “The project is a chance for people to feel the flag, to feel democracy. The American flag is not a toy. It’s not tame. It’s bright, loud, bristling, and alive.”
