‘Snap, Crackle, Pop’ (Solo Exhibition), Tension Fine Art Gallery, London, June 2019

Exhibition text:

‘Snap, crackle, pop’ is an installation that explores the artists turbulent relationship with her own practice, and the guilt that comes with being a creator of ‘purposeless’ objects. Doomed to outlive their maker, these materials were intended for use, and now have been warped into impractical creations, obsessively remade, meanings constantly in flux, living in an anxious state of in-between, something, and ‘thing.’

Molisso uses personal clothing, scaffolding, floor boards from her family home and bedding among the many materials to probe at the inherent quality of things. Subjectivity, and how easily it can be added or erased, is explored when these materials meet one another. The sculptures become a self-portrait, a burden, and junk.

Sporadically through the weeks, the sculptures will snap and tumble, pushed around the confines of the gallery. On the opening night, viewers are encouraged to wreak violence on a collection of small, cement rubber ducks. Tension embedded in the work is sought to be ruptured, turning the gallery into a place of play and destruction.’
