Inventory I


MA Fine Art Degree Show,
Slade School of Fine Art, London

Mixed media
Dimensions variable

The MA Degree show is a three-dimensional summary of visual impressions in London during the period 1999 and 2001.
In Inventory I, objects and decorative elements are merged within an elaborate 'display-structure' to create a humorous, alternative world.
Inventory I is an attempt to express a country's 'aesthetic identity', or its 'national visual aura'. In this case, I was charmed by a certain 'Englishness', which was of course very subjectively perceived.
The materials and objects collected for the installation are acquired from highstreet retailers, charity shops, 1-shops, street markets and DIY stores.
