JESS JOHNSON & JORDAN MARANI
THIS IS NOT A LOVE SCHLONG
SAT 4 UNTIL SAT 20 MAY 2007
Jess Johnson and Jordan Marani's collaborative installation 'This is not a love schlong' engages with our throw away society through its identification of beauty in daily debris.
To Jess Johnson: 'I think of our art practices as a microcosm of the house. Making art is a dredging process. Dredging through the accumulated rubbish that clutters your surroundings and your thoughts. Internally we are continuously sorting through the debris. Clearing some space to think. To focus on what's important. Trying to make sense of all the outdated, leftover crap that we just can't seem to let go of. Sometimes life seems like a fantastic joke and the radio just keeps on playing love songs.'
