The practise uses elements of display and displaying, and the meanings that come from this, an emotional and theoretical ‘rinsing’ of the choices made, the objects employed, their qualities and cultural associations.
There is excessive embellishment, recalcitrance, compulsive ordering and hoarding. Mixed with contradictions, revulsion and revelry.
Mixing and remixing help transform spaces and places, flipping roles and rules… The plinth becomes the sculpture, the frame becomes the plinth… The crepuscular tension beckons mischief and mayhem.
