Residency at EastSide International, Los Angeles, California

April 1-30, 2016


A half dozen beaded white wedding bouquets, a dozen identical wedding crowns, unimpressive disheveled silk flowers, colourful plastic flowers, printed synthetic fabric,  hair pieces, curly hair pieces, wigs, tresses, nylon stockings, mock silver candle holders, plastic bags, blue plastic plates,  cassettes, barbie heads with painted blue eyes, fake brass pitcher, fake suede shoes, fake lashes, fake leopard fur looking coat, fake leather boots, fake yellow fur by the yard, screaming orange plastic pail, artificial grass very green, blue plastic ribbed pool for children, kitchen broom with blue plastic bristles …  


I like to consider the stuff we discard. During the course of my residency, I created series of photos by repurposing, and re-displaying things through my body.   I mine for possible dialogues that can be created by blurring the distinction between subject and object, object and subject.
