Tamara Wilson, (b. 1986)
Pull Station, 2018
Collection of the Anchorage Museum, 2020.2
Fairbanks-based artist Tamara Wilson’s Pull Station incorporates wood, felt, and a plastic fire-alarm pull. Wilson was inspired to create the piece after working on a maintenance crew, inspecting the fire suppression system at a large facility. The work combines elements culturally coded as male and female, interior and exterior.
