In the project room, Miami-based artist Kerry Phillips presents her new project Vacuuming Gave Me Carpal Tunnel. In response to the dependence of man on technology, Phillips uses a traditional object to create her installation. Her collection of old brooms is bundled into a gigantic, impossible-to-handle pile that will occupy the space like some weird object-creature or alien presence. Overtaking the space, this bundle will force the viewer to navigate through the exhibition with care. Aside from engaging certain sculptural issues, Phillip’s work has always been interested in notions of domesticity, women's work, feminist practices, and the ideologies that drive a wedge between new technologies and traditional practices.
