Plane of Scattered Pasts offers new ways of thinking about ordinary objects and their inexorable fragmentation. Things break; they no longer do what they were designed or intended to do. Wear and tear are visual cues of a thing’s history, its former life of use and purpose. The works in this exhibition amend old or broken things by recasting and embellishing their materiality. Their original state, whether ordinary or monumental, is reoriented in terms of aesthetic value, a rumination on current and future brokenness, the perils and pleasures of aging, for objects and for all of us.

Sculptor Heidi Schwegler spends her time in Yucca Valley as co-founder of Yucca Valley Material Lab. Quayola, based in London, uses video, computer software, and installation to explore the tension between real and artificial spaces and surfaces.
