Abstract

In my practice, I make objects and structures that evoke plumbing and drainage. I inhabit this formal lexicon to complicate concepts of bodies, space, and time. Working primarily with sculpture, I focus on ceramic, metal, wood, silicone, and rubber. I am drawn to aspects of plumbing that appear strange, silly, or sentimental; a search for the unusual in the usual. The forms I make are arranged in proximity to each other or physically joined to elicit interconnectedness, sensitivity, liminality, and a celebration of queerness. The connection point between materials is a space for tenderness and reciprocity; one in which I seek to show a mutual recognition of responsibility and contingency.
