NAt Penney (SA) - SIMPLE ACTIONS / SENSORY SATISFACTIONS IN THE UNREST
Front gallery MArch 2019 6th - 23rd
Seeking composure in the acceleration of the technological world, I must rely on my ability to receive the overwhelming influx of information and order it, to detect unexpected fits and simple satisfactions that vibrate amidst the complexity.
When being exposed to simple situations that see objects combined in harmonious configurations that don’t concede to the contexts that our past would place them in, our expectations are challenged about how things relate to one another and we are forced to restructure our understandings.
‘Simple actions/sensory satisfactions in the unrest’ employs discreet coincidences of ‘the fit’ and pleasing points of interconnectedness, by fabricating them into simplified physical entities, offering totems to hold onto, amusingly vibrating through a dynamic exchange of order and chaos.
