curator Lydia Yee describes collecting traditionally by being amassed with the objective of building and
transmitting knowledge. the collector provides a malleable vessel for transporting these desired items.
a personal reflection on my own desires for minimal consumption whilst succumbing to the temptation of collecting found objects.
as individuals, we create the value of an object.
- An act of behaviour that prioritises the life of oneself, typically brought on by states of discomfort which stimulate the individual to withdraw from harmful situations.
This collection of work responds to ideas of shifting focus back to us as individuals, allowing time and space to prioritise ourself, for ourselves. Investing in our own comforts by surrounding yourself with visual and tactile comforts, Providing for yourself a secure and safe place that encourages rest, recuperation and time to re-focus and re-build.
