The Unfounded Future of the Untold

2013 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

Julie Schenkelberg uses vintage domestic items, combined with industrial discarded materials to explore and interpret personal history. Her materials twist, break and blend into one another, blurring their original intent; creating a new yet disjointed vision. The piece The Unfounded Future of the Untold, explores how the history of these objects are mishandled into a new exquisite form, through faulty interpretation or missing information. The installation re-imagines the future of the 54 Jefferson exhibition space with the intended objects, much like interpreting a tattered manual with missing pages. This installation is made of all locally sourced materials.
