Works

Serving Suggestions

2016

RM Gallery, Auckland (NZ)

Using materials like masking tape, orange peel, PE foam, and sunlight, the exhibition works to uncover the possibilities of the intersection of care and humour. Why are certain degrees of care considered silly, and why are other types considered appropriate responses? Through shifts in scale and alternative uses of objects, the sculptures and drawings in Serving Suggestions investigate roles of humour and care in art and society.
