Poems, videos, essays, commentary all on the subject of embracing failure, and now art. The Spacex gallery in Exter featured an exhibition by Canadian artist Laura Kikauka titled ‘Celebrating Failure’ (thanks Isley).
“Kikauka works with the things that others throw away creating spectacular interiors from disposed and superfluous things. Kikauka mainly relies on found objects to transform her life and surroundings into thematic environments. She regards and appreciates supermarkets, thrift and surplus stores, flea markets and rubbish dumps as contemporary cultural ‘museums’ and carefully sorts the chaos of her finds…Kikauka’s ‘excessive aesthetic’ addresses issues of consumer culture; the question of good and bad taste; and celebrates failure in a humourous and ironic manner.”
