Cindy Baker is an interdisciplinary and performance artist whose work explores gender culture, queer theory, fat activism, and art theory, often with a focus on the ways weakening, disabled, fat, or otherwise socially taboo bodies fail to meet the demands of capitalist consumer culture.
The Crash Pad and Trucker Bombs exhibition includes two distinct but related bodies of work. Crash Pad (2018) is a combination of video, drawing, and custom wallpaper that depicts scenes of loving, domestic intimacy between everyday women with disabilities and chronic health issues. This is accompanied by an installation of Trucker Bombs (2014), a series of photo lightboxes that speak to the pressures put on even able bodies to perform productivity under capitalism. Each lightbox depicts a bottle of glowing yellow liquid in the landscape; such vessels are often thrown onto highways by long-haul drivers who, under pressure to drive ever longer hours, choose to forego regular pit stops.
