In Bounties from the Late Abundant Age (2021), Bacon’s site-specific work at POST selects an oft ignored but nevertheless ubiquitous icon in contemporary consumer culture: the miniature labels on grocery store produce. These labels, which establish each produce item as a inventoried commodity, are condensed signifiers for a diverse network of agro-producers, cold-chain logistic companies, and food retailers that together constitute the contemporary world’s food chain. Bacon’s intense focus on these diminutive labels -- their materiality, specific graphic construction and instinctive icon making strategies -- poetically expresses, animates and interrogates the “super-structure” of how we access food systems. The playful moving images make manifest the contemporary world’s social and economic aspirations and its means of indexing through decoration and adornment. Together, these dancing labels uncover beauty from the mundane while also telegraphing the anxieties, affiliations, longings, and ambitions of our post-modern age.
