Michelle Foran: Half a Grapefruit is a Full Circle

Order, like all things, has an anti, which is the dismantling of itself through entropy, like shortcuts, desire lines and IKEA hacking. Using found materials such as industrial piping, plaster and plastics Foran's work draws connections between the abstract and the factual. These seemingly mundane materials adopt new dispositions through a re-contextualization in the attempt at reversing the role of entropy. The separate pieces in this installation merge together to appear illogical but through their illogical representation become systematic. Half a Grapefruit is a Full Circle transforms found objects using vibrant colour and choreography that results in their new and heightened presence.
