SPACE Gallery, Portland, ME
For SPACE gallery's window display on busy Congress street, I wanted to deal directly with the storefront it would occupy. Adjacent to a large local department store and the Maine College of Art, it felt important to respond to that context with something relating to both products and art objects. Behind that plate glass usually lies a potential purchase, and perhaps the promise of a new lifestyle. Vernacular advertising phrases have become embedded in our brains, many of us carry little storefronts in our pockets, sell to our friends, and get bought. This installation plays with the norms of both advertising and objects to pitch a more subversive contract.
