Showing in Open Houses
My work presents a humorous way of re purposing objects and materials that have had a previous life. They have been brought into the contemporary by re-presenting them in response to current daily life. I am also playing on historical and museum contexts and display by presenting them in such a way as to make them appear truthful remnants of history.
While performing as serious and factual, this work is imbued with comical wit and absurdity. Its playful grave humour is reflective and pokes fun at the way we take art and art practice so seriously.
