Description

Candle holders. Plant containers. Used match cradles. Book supports. All so loyal and so generous with their time, day after day after day. Must be exhausting.

‘Pet Objects, or, Frustrated Individuals’ continues an ongoing investigation into the soul, gender, and feelings of inanimate objects. The mass-production of these household things – the making of clones – challenges the boundaries of their identity and individuality. Unrepeatable and fixed physical objects are made infinitely repeatable and infinitely editable: flip, scale, mirror, hollow, revolve, stretch, carve, multiply, merge; on and on. The clones are the same but different, different but the same. Who cares? She is mine, and I love them anyway, and she loves me.
