Threadbare is a small articulated sculpture, crafted as a 1/50 scale maquette, intended to delve into the realm of large-scale adaptable forms. It serves as an exploration of the intricate interplay between conformity and control, while evoking a sense of self-deterioration.
The unfixed structure of Threadbare enables it to adapt and conform to its surroundings and the individuals engaged in its presentation. By embracing an open-ended design, the sculpture not only undergoes shifts in its physical orientation, but also evolves in meaning, revealing glimpses of those involved in its artistic representation.
Through its execution and deliberate flexibility, Threadbare invites viewers to ponder the complexities of conformity, control, and self-expression. It serves as a thought-provoking embodiment of the fragile nature of identity, continuously transforming and adapting to the ever-changing environment in which it is placed.
