Caroline Woolard, Tender Rock, March 27 – May 10, 2024

Tender Rock

The artist Caroline Woolard has long been interested in ceiling tiles as markers of bureaucratic control. Cheap and mass-produced, they can be found in offices across the globe. They are part of the architectural vernacular and as such they embody the uniformity of office culture and the ubiquity of capitalist modes of production. For this exhibition, she has made a series of rock formations that share the ceiling tile’s surface qualities. One grows from the grid like a bureaucratic stalactite; another sits on the floor, balancing two clay bowls [filled with water]. An “orrery for the body” this piece can be turned by a gallery attendant and will slowly rotate over the exhibition’s duration.
