Irish artist Cathy Wilkes’s installations feature objects (strollers, soiled dishes, dolls, dried flower petals) that recur as symbolic leitmotifs, set amongst and outfitted with accoutrements of an abject, quotidian nature. This highly subjective work emerges from process of selection and arrangement of materials that is measured and refined, drawing equally on a precise formal language and the most intimate of personal experiences to create a compelling autobiographical thread.
