Week 7: “Fresh Repose” – QSS collaboration with artist and curator Moran Been-noon

“This week’s collection was co-curated with Aoife Donnellan @aoifedonnellan. We started this collection by looking at work that highlights the sensation of individual isolation alongside regimented togetherness. We selected pieces that engage with this conflict, born out of the human condition. We referenced Duchamp’s Fresh Widow (1920) in the title as a note on the complexity of our relationship with artwork; it’s aesthetic “outside” value and its conceptual “inside” meaning. Fresh Repose attempts to render the sensation of organised isolation that relies both on the external value placed on individuals and their actions, as well as the human need to be witnessed.” Moran Been-noon
