Liquid Life is a slightly unusual proposition for Sharon Fitness, whose practice is often aimed towards adornment at the edges of wear-ability. Fitness is driven to create "temporal art experiences for random audiences." In this installation everyday objects are derailed.
Liberally drizzling objects in liquid silicone, before removing the colourful film and displaying the resulting hollow forms en masse, Fitness suggests an un-hierarchical world which often features utilitarian and somewhat banal domestic things.
Bottle caps and condiment dispensers become integral components of Fitness' colourful world. She envisages the works displayed in this installation as forms evolving within a fantastical, slightly askew galaxy.
Sharon Fitness is a Waimauku based artist.
