Ariel Wood’s practice often begins with a thrown ceramic form. They then create objects that support, surround, hold, and/or connect to this from. Interested in the way plumbing and drainage can elicit notions of interconnectedness, liminality, and queerness, Wood picks and parses out those aspects of the larger system that appear strange, silly, or sentimental. The resulting installations meander through space—responding to the exhibition environment—layering reference, time, and sensorial experience.
