Kaitlyn Bourden is interested in the idea of forgotten and abandoned furniture as surrogate bodies, and how she might ‘mend’ and ‘fix’ them in some way, so that they are transformed. Her room will be filled with uncanny objects that remind us of furniture from our past. In Bourden’s room, the viewer will be immersed in a bizarre landscape of the artist’s memories of spaces.
About the Artist:
Kaitlyn Bourden’s practice investigates how we experience our bodies. She writes, “In particular I wanted to work with materials that could create an illusion of membranous, organ-like forms. The objects that I work with are thought of as “surrogate bodies”; working with ideas of body, surrogate and self.” Check out her work on her website.
