Typology of Absence – 2018 Recology Artist-in-Residence Exhibition, Seattle, WA
They’ve been gutted of their meaning. They exist for the other.
Their bodies were for others, and their skin made to endure.
We don’t know what they once held or held onto. All that remains is a trace of a foregone presence, an empty space filled with the weight of absence.
There, in that in-between space, through the cracks, a potential for selfhood emerges, negotiating remnant objecthood with pronounced subjectivity.
They are artifacts, reminders for renewal, forever archiving dusts of the present.
