Contain the Container, 2022




A sculpture made from cast paper and pigmented plaster that teeters on a feeble, hand-made wooden table. It resembles an ancient ruin, deteriorating with time and crumbling under its own weight. The sculpture casts a large shadow and is an object on the precipice, ready to throw itself at one's feet, lunge at the viewer or just crumble to the floor. The container that was used as the model for the form is the ubiquitous plastic basket that berries are bought in. Here, I magnify the scale, flip it upside down, and put it on a table that is woefully unstable.
