Utah Execution Chamber

acrylic on canvas with steel hooks, twine and plastic water pistols, 2015

(text by L. Koltun.)

Based on execution chamber photograph by Trent Nelson/The Associated Press Files.

Utah has brought back death by firing squad if lethal drugs are not available. A target is pinned over the heart of the seated and strapped-in convict. Sandbags control ricochet. Five volunteers are selected from police officers, with priority given to those from the area of the crime. There are always more volunteers than needed. One of the rifles fires blanks, but nobody knows which one, so nobody knows who actually does the killing.
