Private Constellations, 2017

Private Constellations is an installation inspired by the night sky and the power of the human imagination. Borrowing from the aesthetics of the celestial markers and their imagined meanings, we look within ourselves to find the same patterns and pathways, map our own birthmarks, and immortalize them in these over-scaled, graphic, sculptural forms. These forms utilize a common, but forgotten material – lawn chair webbing – to reflect their location.

Layers of Bad Decisions, 2017
On view February 25 – April 9, 2017
Windows @ Walgreens 7340 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33141

Phillips tells the shared story of things through sculpture and installation using materials, often overlooked, available in a given place at a given time – ranging from things found to collected experiences and retold stories. Often, she’ll alter a space using architectural interventions and enlist the public’s participation in the gathering of materials or through performative interactions.

Between the seemingly accidental nature of the materials she finds & uses and her dogged refusal/inability to look at things in ordinary ways – her installations (collections or inventories, even) have a way of scratching through time & forgetfulness causing you to remember the long-thought-forgotten – like the line from that song you used to love or that word that is always just on the tip of your tongue. Beyond being sweetly nostalgic, her work is intrinsically universal reflecting the true nature of place, time, people & relationship through the objects she uses.
