Remnants

While at first the sculptures seem neat, clean, and well balanced, upon closer inspection it becomes clear that the work is comprised of a combination of misfit pieces, and the work reveals its intentional lack of balance.

Remnants is a commissioned installation inspired by the building's history as a furniture factory. Constructed from repurposed components of old furniture and cabinetry, each sculpture is imbued with layers of history. The stored pasts ingrained in each piece of wood come together in the sculptures, creating a collection of memories in this contemporary reinterpretation of traditional cabinetry. The repurposed wooden remnants act as a reference to the repurposed factory, which has been transformed into a vibrant living space.
