  • About the work

    Present within all of my work is the flow of material, flow of the hand, flow of capital — the flow-state of production— accessed through different means. Alternating between a position of shame, censure, and celebration.


    Wholesale mythologies (2018) is a durational series of work consisting of multiple layers and objects concerned with reconfiguring the material palette of the wholesale market, where organic and non-organic matter, arrange and rearrange themselves on the surface as a byproduct of the commercial activity. Interfering with the emerging configurations of often pristine waste—discarded during early morning exchanges, before the reset, the restart. Within this cycle is an absent space, inhabited by invisible figures with alternative motives. To collect, to feed, to re-use, to re-imagine. The site to some extent, becomes an anthropological space for the re-emergence of new more critical objects from the same component parts or fleeting moments.


    The tyre becomes the road as the floor becomes the wall and the public becomes private.
