Objects Passing Through
Weight and weightlessness describe the journey of forgotten objects. At the very moment of consuming a new product, one often feels a rebuilding of their self. There is the illusion that the product will make us better, happier, or more fulfilled. We give great weight to this responsibility of objects in our lives. But what happens when these possessions of ours are discarded? As a nature lover and a city inhabitant, this process of peoples’ objects accumulating in the streets absorbs me. Throughout my daily walks, I collect objects that are in the midst of an organic process of decay, receding from usefulness and facing their eventual displacement into the street. No longer serving the purpose they were created for, the objects receive a new function in the system of my work. My paintings seek new atmospheres where the objects can function again, living in between decay and growth. In this process, I explore how human life can be defined by the weight of accumulating and the weightlessness of discarding, and the effect this has on the natural and inner environment.
