PORTIA MUNSON

Disjecta is proud to announce the third exhibition by Curator in Residence Julia Greenway. Portia Munson’s Flood presents a meditation on archive, materiality, and mass consumption. Describing her process of as “collecting objects and assembling, in essence using as my resource the refuse of consumer culture,” Munson assembles thousands of found objects, all of them made of blue plastic, creating a singular large-scale installation.

At the entrance of the exhibition, the visitor is greeted by multiple vitrines encasing found objects. Among the display cases, wall-mounted monitors display video footage of scanned installation materials. Flood, the installation work in which the exhibition takes its title, fills Disjecta’s main gallery. Carefully sorted, arranged, and compartmentalized, blue objects cover the floor in its entirety. Muson’s installation speaks to humanity's failure to contain its waste.  Through monumental scope, Flood constructs an archive through which we can decipher the artifacts of consumerism.
