SHIFT, 2015
Installation View at Studio 10 and details

Textile, metal staples in drywall, plaster, plaster weld, dimensions variable Shift consists of 6 vertical, "seams" on perimeter of the gallery, formed by stapling fabric to the walls. In this view we can see 4 of them; one in a corner is barely visible. An entire sports jacket has been disassembled and stapled along vertical floor-to-ceiling pencil lines; some fabric is left attached and some ripped away, leaving shredded fabric, staples, gouges and broken sheetrock. In some places the fabric has been stuffed into the gouged crevices or hangs from the surface of the drywall, and elsewhere we see only traces of the activity of stapling or the partial repair of the wall.
