British artist David Shillinglaw transforms the mundane mattress using his textual interventions, so they begin to carry both the meaning of the added words and a heightened sense of their own histories. more
These everyday objects suddenly become playful, philosophical, or literary, drawing our attention to the tension between the domestic and external environments. Whether discarded on the street or abandoned in a junk pile, the soiled mattresses that serve as Shillinglaw’s canvases – spray painting them with often existential wordplays – are simultaneously functional objects and art objects, representative of both our human interactions and our material refuse.
