MELISSAH CHALKER AND SKYE WAGNER
REAL FAKE charts the uncertain terrain between surface and substance: between material and the representation of material. The works shown use vernacular substances – vinyl, laminated flooring and prefabricated steel which emphasis surface – aspirational, shiny, new. Wood and stone are doubled, domesticated and performed on the surface of composite materials.
Playing with modes of display, wall and floor works will speculate – re-modeling familiar surfaces, platforms and spaces. But rather than the asserting the confidence of belonging, these materials will be nervous, awkward and slightly embarrassed – fugitives from the display home
