Six independent tape works, each carrying lines across from the others. The wire drawers are readymade grids re‑purposed as stretchers to support the coloured tapes as they twist and turn through the work, leaving a play of shadows and reflected colour on the walls.
The use of the quotidian wire drawers is mostly pragmatic. Admittedly, it isn’t easy to unsee them as crappy side-of-road Ikea, but rather than necessarily valorizing the quotidian, or serving as a rebuff to the cult of high-end processes in the artworld, I see them as drawing attention to assumptions around equally mass-produced art materials such as readymade canvas stretchers.
