At Risk



Militant Madness

The original AT RISK jumper was knitted for a vulnerable loved one who, while seriously off his rocker, found himself stigmatized and under attack.  The message was unapologetic, confrontational and empowering. You think I’m mad, I’ll give you mad.Show me some humanity or fuck off.

Recognising it’s poignantly militant message, Harland Miller included it in the exhibition ‘YOU DIG THE TUNNEL AND I’LL HIDE THE SOIL’ at the White Cube Gallery in 2008. By now in a glass case, moth-eaten but still magical, it’s purpose was served… the heartless were banished, and my loved one had recovered.

This act of enlightened patronage earned him his very own version, as seen, above.
