As an annual installation dedicated to Pleasurable, Lush, Utilitarian, Subjects of Humanity, PLUSH is a tactile mindscape. Textiles are inherently connected to the domestic environment. In the U.S., fiber art has often been mislabeled as craft or “women’s work,” however, in many countries, textile production is considered men’s labor.
Slipping between resin pours, meditative states, and explorations into the cosmos through everyday objects, Sri Prabha challenges our sense of gravity and simultaneously asks us to find our center. His coalescing galaxies are fluid yet contained within their solid resin forms. Poetically, “Anthropocene 1” renders a discarded sneaker as an animalistic object with gritty toenails poking out from the geometric treaded sole. The object is captured from above as though it is a specimen of another species, a disruption in the natural order. Curated by Laura Marsh, discrete objects and poetic photographs complement the immersive. Prabha will install an encompassing meditative environment for “Nightlands 3,” an oscillating video that explores our connection to the oceans and our dependency on the water cycle.
