Created for the exhibition Working Conditions at Southern Exposure.
In this continuously reconfigured artwork, lengths of wood and hunks of upholstery foam are continuously propped, leaned, stacked, balanced, and tied together to form a variety of temporary structures. The work’s complete shape encompasses not only these transient compositions, but also the performative actions that shift these structures from one state to another. The materials used are as much props as sculptural components, and the created structures are as much remnants as results. The work’s reflexive repetition progressively accumulates a unified meaning that exists diffusely through memory, documentation, and physical residues.
