Michael Queenland Maureen Paley

A solo project by LA-based artist Michael Queenland.

The work for the exhibition began in Rome, Italy in 2016. Traversing the city by foot, Michael Queenland began making a visual, material, and temporal record of Rome composed of discarded objects that he came across on the street while running errands or on his way to specific sites over the course of one year.

As things were collected and brought back to his studio, both sides of the found objects were digitally scanned and the images were organised into general categories. From these 2500 scanned images made over a period of a year, the artist selected items from various groupings and printed the images onto ceramic tiles, later composing 25 individual tile panels based on visual, narrative, or thematic similarities. A selection of three of the twenty five panels are shown for the current exhibition.

The exhibition also includes a print from the artist’s ongoing work Rudy’s Ramp of Remainders, first shown in 2012, in which he clipped every published image of a dead body that appeared in the New York Times over the course of one year – from late 2011 through early 2013.
