At First Sight Write Up / by ariel wilson

A blurb about the exhibit with reference to the Junkyard:

"As a whole, the exhibition invokes the ideas of ritual and habit, both as elements of the artists’ processes, and as part of human society. For example, Ariel Wilson’s installation The Junkyard: A Series of inferences and constructions, No. 7 catalogues the physical detritus of an abandoned car using found objects, photographs, and texts that fall somewhere between anthropological notes and diary entries. She seeks the essence of the car’s driver through the physical remnants of habitual behaviors associated with cars including driving, smoking cigarettes, and spending time with loved ones. As such, Wilson draws out the significance of these quotidian rituals, identifying in them a significance that can be studied and preserved in an academic way."
