Our world seems to move quickly — its relentless pace demands that we keep up, and not stop to wonder, and yet, beneath the restlessness, the world calls out for us to slow down and take a second glance, to consider the mundane, to rest.

 

Remainder takes the form of a sculptural space, built with everyday found objects mostly obtained from the street, that are held in place by each other, and by various strips and threads from used clothes. Sometimes the pieces are secure, and sometimes they seem to be desperately holding on. Each part carries its own narrative while remaining in conversation with the parts around it, never assuming finality, distinct yet suggestive of something more than a simple sum of parts.

 

The process throughout, then, is one of evaluating and reevaluating, constructing and reconstructing, finding and re-finding. The prefix “re” means “again”: to go back to, a return to a previous condition. At the same time, it refers to a new, changed state: renewal and revelation that comes from returning to roots, building on what already exists. That state is never clean-cut; it is messy and in constant flux — in making, in seeing, in thinking, in living — a search for balance between now and then, here and there: was, is, could be, and will be.
