WIP Show Artist Statement
Ugly, uncomfortable, unfashionable, imperfect, out of place… it doesn’t matter – everyone is welcome. Although we are surrounded by talk of inclusivity and equality in our culture, why are these ideals of legitimacy often ignored when it comes to our things? There is a tendency to look a gift horse in the mouth; to hide the chipped mug; to separate our things into tribes of what belongs together and what doesn’t. ‘Sandbox’ intends to discuss this through sentimentality, empathy and zoomorphic objects, in a world where everyone is legitimate, none are turned away or separated. They all belong, they are all welcome.
