To the things themselves

FELTspace, Adelaide, 2013

Cold hands, warm heart, found furniture, resin, ice and mixed media, dimensions variable.

Philosopher Edmund Husserl researched a kind of slippage between materialism and idealism, a profound thought that is still reflected in contemporary practices today. Exploring notions of nostalgia, horror, the known and unknown, to the things themselves seeks to illustrate a form of consciousness materialised through ordinary matter.
