Beckie Mitchell

Statement

Focussed on language and space, my work attempts to understand the process of thinking. These quiet installations offer an alternative context to a mundane object or a simple word; they allow the viewer to carefully consider something in which they may often ignore as it is deemed unimportant. Existing in this space in-between the everyday and the realm of the removed; words and objects lose their functionality. There becomes an unsettling feeling of familiarity combined with disassociation, as the use value of language and its connection to the world are questioned.
