Exhibition: Museum of Abandoned and Bereaved Objects

Museum of Abandoned and Bereaved Objects showed at room @ The Model, Sligo from 3rd - 29th July 2012.  My exhibition combined sculpture and photography, focusing on found abandoned objects from derelict spaces.

Abandoned Objects in Wax with Lightboxes made from Abandoned Drawers.

Abandoned Keys, Candle and Rosary Beads in Wax. 

The sculptural pieces in the exhibition combine found objects with wax and paper.  Candles, keys, rust, pictures, rosary beads, glasses and other objects are encased within these substances.

Objects captured in wax.

I use wax and paper because they are temporary substances.  I like the idea of the temporary because the objects have outlasted their owners, and the fact that they are left behind signifies the temporary nature of life.
