SORRY IT’S A MESS, WE JUST MOVED IN! brings to question the way in which we relate to objects, be they disposable commodities, forms of function, or treasured memories. The works play with the senses, be it through their materiality, tantalizing or familiar presence, or their purposeful representation. What objects do we consider to be disposable or valuable, irrelevant or irreplaceable? The sculpture-heavy, raw presentation unveils objects outside of their usual context. A bemusing presence pulls the viewer into a surrounding that feels entirely temporary, as though someone has just moved in.
SORRY IT’S A MESS, WE JUST MOVED IN! unravels these themes of temporality, and of the detachment and attachment of our present-day selves. In a time when technology has shrunk our physical identity and oversaturated our digital persona, are we becoming less and less attached to the physical objects that surround us, or do they have more meaning than ever before?
