Deploying familiar nation-state symbols and their representational tools of exchange—anthems, bureaucratic forms, flag iconography, and currencies—Reed’s works highlight the logics under which our world is ordered. Through drawing, video, audio, and book works, the Ottawa-born, Berlin-based artist amplifies and recomposes these appropriated forms into aggregates that foreground the need for new models of identification and transaction that reflect our complex global condition.
