Ester Partegàs’ fourth solo exhibition at Foxy Production omprises two new series of sculptures inspired by objects so ubiquitous they are virtually invisible.

The artist is interested in the tales these overlooked items – tarpaulins, buckets, containers, and labels – tell us about the ephemeral nature of things. She rescues them from being so mundane and unremarkable that they are almost non-objects, what writer Georges Perec calls “the infra-ordinary,” inviting us to look beyond the illusion of the everyday. She translates the unloved
and the passed-by into subjects of contemplation by plucking them out of their quotidian obscurity and placing them in the gallery space, and through the material changes she has them undergo.
