About

‘The Fridge Curator’ deals with the notion of the white cube, using the domestic object of a fridge as a vehicle to explore this idea. It questions the confines of this institution by supplying an alternative: the fronts of fridges. All items on the fridge are found ephemera – things I have compulsively picked off the floor. (Other people’s lost items that become other people’s rubbish.) To the left of the trio of fridges is the equivalent of a floor plan, which labels each shopping list, postcard and scribbled note as works of art. The language used on the sign is typical to that found within the gallery, each crediting an artist with an estimated date of creation.
