In Addison’s process-orientated studio practice, familiar objects and motifs are loosened from their bearings in everyday life. The relationship between objects and the body, and of objects to one another, is intrinsic to the haptic and spatial curiosity at the heart of her research. In work that is apparently casually made, the legacy of a paradoxically slow and often repetitive way of making is cautiously disclosed.
“The playful, elusive and lyrical nature of Addison’s work quietly acknowledges the ominous darkness of our current reality, whilst simultaneously reminding us that alternative, more hopeful perspectives have always existed, suggesting that the material world is capable of exceeding every conscious glimpse we glean of it and every linguistic structure we impose on it”.
