Statement

The work is concerned with the idea of a “happening”, the notion of a performance without a person performing, but rather an object. The materials are banal and overly familiar but through a ritualistic motion are transformed into a more significant object.

The work questions the idea of a failed action. The work is a haphazard coalescence of everyday materials and objects brought together to form a systematically unplanned event.
