The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
My handmade objects and architectures re-imagine everyday economies such as the shop, park, and home, where private and public mingle in a consommé/sludge. I create immersive systems that transform spectators into participants, and examine themes of ownership, agency, and exchange. Made from assorted domestic and industrial components including wood, fabric, foam, and concrete – as well as video and performance – my multi-genre works are informed by and shaped from movement practices, anti-materialism, primal memory, utopian excavations, and radical embodiment.
I am interested how we shape the realities we inhabit, anticipate, and choose, and subsequently, how they shape us in return. I ask of my work to uncover what happens when we reach outside of ourselves- what propels us to move, what our points of contact look like, and how our individual bodies might form one, universal body.
My work is situated between sculpture and set, visual art and theatre, site and event. It is in this liminal terrain that I look for an edge where subjecthood and objecthood become interchangeable.
My work included on the White Columns' Artist Registry reflects a recent body of work consisting of oversized painting-sculpture portraits, which are informed by victorian lithographed apparel hangers. The hangers are sometimes used as display structures for a line of experimental work-wear I also launched in 2016, called OUTFIT.
