A show that turns artists’ “scraps and discards” into fresh works of art:
For What is Yours is Mine, Doug Weathersby — a/k/a Environmental Services — [visited other artists] and learned about … their practice, photographically documented their spaces and collected scraps and discards from the studio….
Regardless of what he was given, Weathersby abided by one rule: he must use everything that he recovered from each studio in What is Yours is Mine.
Using this unwanted detritus, including components of failed art works, Weathersby composed bizarre sculptures, keeping in mind the nature of each artist’s practice as he worked.
A large dumpster, ES Art Storage, was fabricated on site. It is both constructed from and contains remaining materials and works that “didn’t make the cut.”
