Make Room For Comfortable2018
Things I Want From IKEA is an ongoing series of small works on paper about desire and dreams of a nice home. Started as a joke, these quick and crude sketches have become a crucial research component to my studio practice, exploring normative desires, objecthood and thingness, consumption, and sincerity.
Make Room For Comfortable references the theme of the 2018 IKEA Catalogue: "Make room for life." This series of small drawings fixates on IKEA pillow advertisements and an obsessive longing for comfort, proposing a space and image for quiet contemplation of what it means to compromise, be intimate and vulnerable.
