ALL NEW CONSTRUCTION! 2009. Cut and carved drywall, wood, sand bag. Dimensions variable. For this exhibition at Jaus, Los Angeles, I recreated half of my living room in mirror image in the gallery. This installation was conceived as the housing bubble was bursting and completed after the collapse and took its cue from the notion of “staging” wherein homes are emptied of their personal identities and re-articulated so that future buyers can more easily envision themselves in them. The elements blur the line between flattened renderings and dimensional objects, between the thing and its representation, between fantasy and reality. >>About Charmaine Felix-Meyer
