In Gallery 2 Postmasters will present “In G.O.D. We Trust” - a new digital video by Kenneth Tin-Kin Hung (G.O.D. is a stand-in for Global Obama Domination). Born in Hong Kong and now living in New York, Hung has been called "the John Heartfield of the digital era." His meticulously researched collages and animations composed entirely of imagery appropriated from the web deliver a biting political satire. "In G.O.D. We Trust" presents global and domestic challenges facing the new Obama administration with the savior president cast as different deities (Jesus Christ, Mohammad, Krishna, prophet Abraham, Yoruba Orisha Trickster God Elegua/Eshu, Buddha, and Guadalupe). In addition to the video, a large outdoors banner of “Buddha Siddartha Obama” will hang on the gallery’s fa├žade.
