Artist Monique Lacey is fascinated by the transformation and elevation of the ordinariness of the humble cardboard box. The initial building up of each form is countered by acts of crushing the multilayered cardboard boxes, which results in their forms being both damaged and substantially reconfigured. In the act of crushing the artist utilises her body weight, and it might be variously read as playful, aggressive, cathartic or darkly humorous. This is the second solo show in Australia by the NZ-based artist.
