Composed by 116 shelves, 5 pedestals and 288 screws, Out of Order is a conceptual site specific installation. These objects are metaphors and symbols used to talk about the past and contemporary social/economical context and especially the conditions and the effects of exploited and under the table work.
Out of Order conveys ideas of dignity and protest through civil disobedience.
The content was inspired by events like the “Day Without Immigrants” (February 17th 2017) or the “A Day Without a Woman” (March 8th 2017) and other previous strikes that claimed for human rights like the (Memphis sanitation strike February 1968, Memphis, Tennessee). As a composition, Out of Order is inspired by the way mold grows and spreads in consistent clutters, overtaking and reclaiming an environment.
What happens when interchangeable, anonymous objects meant to function as invisible supports to other, more meaningful objects, claim space and visibility? Out of Order serves as a visualization of these objects shaping their environment and stating their own identity and aesthetic.
