P-H/P is an exhibition involving fragile, banal and familiar objects. Through a process of translation and transformation the objects are re-assembled into small monuments.
A series of fabricated small structures or platforms utilize found or impoverished materials. The platforms are all below waist height with each surface or interior left empty.
Each work is fashioned with regard to structure, transparency, mobility and efficiency. The ensemble of works responds to the gallery interior, particularly emphasising the viewer’s navigation throughout the space.

essay accompanying an exhibition, and what takes place in an
Letting S be the act of reading this essay outlining the conceptual
parameters of the new work that I have made for the exhibition
space (blanket), and S? be the act of reading this essay outlining
the conceptual parameters for why I have not made a work for the
exhibition space (blanket); and letting P be the proposition that
there was a work made for the exhibition, and P? be the proposition
that there was not a work made for the exhibition; the argument
If P is true, then it is not in your power to do S? (for if P
is true, then there is, or was, a lacking condition essential
for your doing S?, the condition, namely, of there being a work
made for the exhibition)
But if P? is true, then it is not in your power to do S (for a
But either P is true or P? is true
So, either it is not in your power to do S or it is not in your
power to do S?
Thus, it is never in your power to do anything other than what you
actually do and you must logically conclude that this essay
outlines the conceptual parameters for the new work that I have
made for the exhibition space (blanket).
