The Lonely Age (installation views). 2019. Mixed media installation including laundry basket, wearable sculpture, paintings on Mylar, scavenged and discarded objects. Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive. Photography by Rohan DaCosta.
Briefly housed in the Berkeley Art Museum, this installation was a “container” for my eponymous film project The Lonely Age and served as an (an)aesthetized form of documentation — an imagined archive of both our present reality and the future-world that we may one day inherit. Objects in this space included paintings from a series called Mothers, as well as a prototype of a speculative chapbook / seed catalog, titled the Millennium Flowers Catalog.
Other objects in this space included a laundry-basket containing a TV screen and old mopheads, mis-used ordinary household objects and lighting fixtures, and different assemblages of material that ask viewers to consider new ways of orienting their bodies to familiar markers of consumer capitalism.
