Grounders (2016)

This work explores the artists position as producer, and its inherent causal consumption. The clamps were purchased then returns, the varying objects were found then lost once again. This in-between is the intersection of things in passing. Consumption and production are both enacted only to be undone by the temporality of this framed happening.

Objects are grounded in space using bar-clamps, and the bar-clamps are as well grounded by objects. The relationships between this space and these objects were held together by uncommitted means.

The forms were inspired by childhood memories of playgrounds. These were places where verticality and horizontality were unsettled, reconfigured, and at times challenged, where, at times, what constituted the ground was composed by the games we played.
