Matt Ziemke’s recent exhibition Adrift, speaks to familiarity’s ambiguous nature through relational investigations of form. A collection of disparate objects allude to the viewer that there is a meta-narrative within the relational proximities. This ambiguity supports the work by leaving the viewer enough space to derive their own ideological understanding, while simultaneously offering an investigation contingent on an experiential similitude. Without the viewer’s memories the content of this work would render itself formal. The relational display of the objects invites us to interpret that we might have an active role within this handmade-industrial narrative.
