Death is ordinary. Disinterred brings together a body of work that equates an act of making with an act of muted violence – whether enacted on a body, an image, or an object. Making unified wholes out of disparate fragments, the processes at work in Disinterred are equal part making and unmaking. Featuring sculpture and video works, Disinterred presents images of latent emotional content, distilling the artist’s conflicted states of dread and pleasure.
