This pop-up will engage the community by providing an important platform that talks about historic and present issues with interactive qualities from the sculptures. “Discretion of internal turmoil” is meant to put these works on the spot and provide a space for the audience to accept their own internal turmoil while being confronted with someone else’s distress. The acceptance of this work is at the discretion of the viewer therefor, meant to provide a context that is open to discussion amongst peers. The sculptures within this exhibition are attempting to reclaim the lost appreciations of a healthy average frame. Celebrating the everyday figure through this series of work focusing on mental health rather than the likeness of that which is usually depicted. The organic shapes, both attached and free formed, are interpretations of the incapacitating negative thoughts that can be reversed into self-compassionate views.
