Case Study II
Lehman College Art Gallery, Bronx, NY
Case Study II examines the events leading to the loss of ownership and demolition of a Massachusetts homestead. Artifacts of the subsequent dissolution of the family are presented in a broad range of outcomes, from found objects in vitrines to freestanding sculpture incorporating wood, ceramics, and an audio guide. The authorship and authenticity of each object is called into question.
Unanswerable questions are addressed through this project. When does an object go out of existence, as opposed to merely changing? Do things and ideas stop being when they do not exist in our memory?
