“The banal, the quotidian, the obvious, the common, the ordinary, the infra-ordinary, the background noise, the habitual? […] How are we to speak of these common things, how to track them down, how to flush them out, wrest them from the dross in which they are mired, how to give them meaning, a tongue, to let them, finally, speak of what it is, who we are”. – Georges Perec, Species of Spaces, 1974.
My studio practice is centred around a long standing interest in objects as signifiers of personal histories and events, from the epic to the banal. The objects I focus on are familiar, commonplace and often overlooked.
