All My Exes Live In Tesco's

2007

Timber, steel, plastic, electric fans, lighting, paint and tape

550 x 250 x 250 cm
“All My Exes Live In Tesco’s is quite an expressive piece. You try to have a conceptual rigour, but spontaneity is important as well. I was interested in how you can make a really big thing out of nothing. I used a ladder instead of building a frame, and the gesture of it is quite reduced. I strapped cardboard boxes to it, and attached the bin liners to a fan so they filled with air and then poured paint on them. In one way it’s like a car crash mess, but also very lively and poetic. I’m interested in conservation, and this work is like a performance or instruction guide. Because I have to remake it every time it’s shown, it can never look exactly the same twice. I think of my work in relation to object production rather than a documentation of the final thing. I always video the installation of the work so there is a record of the experience and action of making it, and I hope that if it is recreated in the future it might retain its fragile and delicate quality.”
