Shireen Liane is an American conceptual artist living in the UK. Working across sculpture, video & performance, her practice inhabits the space between signifier & signified, using symbols and text. The Altered States Series began in 2016, during the presidential primary election cycle, as a comment on the decline in discourse. Since then, it has evolved to explore the yawning chasm between the ideals of a nation & the brutality of it's practice.
"ALL THAT REMAINS"
Installation by Anna Horeglad & Lara Hailey. 2019, The Stours Space, London, United Kingdom
This is the first collaborative installation that Anna Horeglad and Lara Hailey have done. They made the decision to work with the ready-made, specifically used chairs. An empty chair can represent loneliness, loss or sorrow but also the hope of a return. Chairs are a physical reminder of humans’ occupation of space whilst also being a proxy for humans not in space. On mass, they are suggestive of human interactions, but these are deconstructed, piled high and precariously suspended making group activities impossible. The chairs could be a metaphor for the break down of domestic relations or even society as a whole. The chairs charred wooden surfaces enforce this sense of disorder and upheaval whilst the interlaced red yarn could represent a human’s nervous system desperately trying to maintain a connection in an ever discordant world.
