Mariya Garbacheva - Defining Practices

Meta work (2012) Household gloss paint

I am currently exploring the idea of Abstract Art work being 'meta-work' (a work about that work that represents itself, the process of its creation or materiality, the convention of art, or the gallery where it’s hung).

An object removed from the everyday and placed on display in a gallery or museum is transformed into potential artwork.  I am interested in reversing this by placing ‘artwork’ outside of its gallery environment to interact with everyday objects.
