Jodi Hays — Site-Specific Installation
Getting Used to Living in the in Between
The Renaissance Center, Dickson, TN January 2010

My work functions as a metaphor for living in relationship, but also as a reflection on our contemporary social and economic moment. How does one intimately and collectively, get used to living in the in-between, liminal spaces of already begun but not yet finished projects?

My sculptural work is intimate in scale. This installation of clay forms express my interest in landscape and terrain as a metaphor for relationships. The work is intimate, yet Pangea-like in its disbursement. However, the title “We Can Fight This Drift,” implies a statement made from one or another (or collective).
