Footnotes

  • American artist Nancy Fouts has spent a lifetime collecting objects and trinkets to integrate into her work, utilizing the kind of throw-away items that others would leave in the trash and transforming them into art. From old chess-boards to false teeth, stuffed animals to religious ephemera, her work is filled with the strange and uncanny. Fouts presents her sculptures and installations with a sense of absurd humour, taking mundane items and rendering them bizarre, often even unsettling, turning the everyday into the unique or otherwordly. Her work is filled with paradoxes and surprises, and rarely fails to raise either a smile or a frown.
