Eliu Almonte: SHITGOAL

SHITGOAL. Photo provided by the artist.


SHITGOAL: a play on the phrase “Shithole Countries," which U.S. President Donald Trump used to refer to African, Caribbean, and Central American countries, including Haiti and El Salvador. I incorporate a deflated soccer ball with an image of the U.S. flag, a toilet as a goalpost, artificial grass, and audio recordings.
