Theater of the Mundane

Theater of the Mundane is a series of site-specific multi-media performative installations, initially created during MAD - Museum of Arts and Design Studio Residency Program, exploring the absurdity of the human condition through sculpture, assemblage, painting, costume, video and performance. Examining society’s brutally intoxicating consumerism and overwhelmingly unbridled desire for material possessions, as a symptom of extreme alienation and isolation, Theater of the Mundane explores eternal human longing for connection, invisible domestic labor, and greed.
