A Storage Problem is an interactive installation of ceramics created for Objectspace by Hawkes Bay artist Martin Poppelwell. 

 

Collaborating with architect Ben Daly and photographer Derek Henderson, artist Martin Poppelwell’s installation A Storage Problem deals to the issue of work that accumulates over time and out of view in the artist’s studio.

Fragments and broken sequences of previous work spanning more than a decade are realigned and reimagined in a custom-built structure, a stockroom designed for public use. Poppelwell invites new configurations of work to be curated from the archive into the wider gallery space empowering visitors to consider ideas of placement and possession while simultaneously engaging with the work.

A Storage Problem will also include works in our Vault space.
