Interior of Merle features an interview of Merle, an inter-dimensional being, and expert of high taste. While Merle has only recently received physical form, Merle is interested in objects and the spell they cast on individuals who chase them through consumption. "I have invested my happiness in these objects." In relation to physicality, there is time which, based on Merle's opinion, seems to enhance the allure of objects, while others may deem them as "left overs," "stale," or especially "ruins." Merle investigates the need for terrestrial beings to consume, self define through totems, and societally assert good taste.
The Artist created the entire piece in their apartment during quarantine lockdown in London, earlier in 2020. The set constructed for this work is made entirely of used materials that can deteriorate in nature. I painted used hotel sheets (100% cotton) with food waste (onion skins, cabbage, paprika) and rust. I also created additional sculptures from toilet paper mache(with flour paste). Related to the "ruins" I investigate am very concerned with what I do and do not leave behind. I see every Artist as a model of production and believe we have a responsibility to our environment.
