Recollection Objects

Possessions, steel, 18,000 feet of thread, 2016, 30"w x 30"h x 12"d

For hours, days and weeks I wrapped, cocooned and mummified some of my most precious possessions until they become vague silhouettes of their former selves. Buried under 18,000 feet of gold silk thread, this work calls into question our personal and cultural compulsions to turn ordinary objects into valuable artifacts. Through labor and material, I explore the connection between the literal conservation of objects and the emotional preservation of memory.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
