Building monuments and folding forts upon a slippery ocean and a moving sky, 2021
The apparent solidity of the formations brings into question the fragility of its cardboard base—a material able to be dented, ripped and weakened with water. As hollow vessels, their solidity is illusory as objects whose function is as containers to be filled. Rearranging and stacking these boxes requires repeated action and precision. With identical proportions, the boxes lend themselves to formation yet bringing them into exact alignment is a task where methodologies of stacking and building become a means of striving for perfection – Excerpts from Gus Fisher Gallery exhibition.
