I make fictional sculptures expressly in order to photograph them. The photograph, rather than the object, is the final product. I make the objects, which are flat, from pieces of photographs that are in large part sourced from other sculptures. The constructions rely on the three-dimensionality depicted in these fragments to create the illusion of a sculptural object. I am fascinated by the way we use photography to take stock of the objects in the world – art objects in particular. The visual syntax of these images is typically sparse and direct. The objects are decontextualized – and the photographs evidentiary. I want to adopt this language to create this collection of ersatz sculptures, and collapse archive and object into one another.
