Critique #1

For my first critique I chose to tag the phrase “What Else Is There?” on the gallery wall. I have been exploring found text while out on my walks, viewing these words as a form of residue or trace left by others who have passed through the area. Whether in the form of graffiti, postering or other word based intervention, I am drawn to the choices of words that individuals post around the city, left to be interacted with and contemplated by those passing by. For this piece, I chose to bring the street into the gallery, working with a phrase that is intentionally open to many different interpretations. It could be read a commentary on the gallery space as an institution itself, a playful look at a seemingly empty room facilitating discussion around the very nature of emptiness or an open ended hint that there is always more to be considered.
