" The Guests All Crowded Into the Dining Room will feature works from several facets of Stockholder’s practice, including a large-scale site-responsive installation in addition to distinct bodies of studio works.
The studio-based works are made from both purchased and found materials, all of which are designed and manufactured by other people - furniture, plastic goods, fabrics, hardware, paint, paper. The line between a ‘raw’ material and ‘found’ object is blurry, and the intended-life of these objects is discarded but not forgotten. For example, a square of plastic floor and an orange rope are repurposed as formal, painterly elements, and yet their origins are clearly legible. The history and intended-use of these objects confront the viewer as Stockholder deftly engages the power of synergy, combining other peoples’ thoughts and objects into a form distinctly her own".
