Review quote

The interviews tell of the tedium of working in designer fashion and the obstacles to correctly gather and produce a single piece, referred to as "soft sculpture" (Morgan-Cleveland rejects the phrase). Pictures run alongside the interview transcriptions, and the "containers" (as Price's pieces are called) are coded both familiar and uncanny, approachable and scrambled, products with mixed signifiers that might be ugly, or not. For instance, on a piece called Bag with Decorative Pattern and Federal Element, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation--printed liners rattle nerves (it is tax season, after all), but the other printed liners suggest a culture of DIY-patternmaking and lo-fi nostalgia. Price unites material and concept as higher-than-high accessories that could be used, but won't be.--Ben Fama "BOMB Magazine "show more
