Snap Crackle Pop is an installation by Marylyn Molliso

About

For our second show Tension are very proud to be showing the work of Marylyn Molisso. This is Marylyn’s first solo show, her work exemplifies the very best of the new wave of exciting young British contemporary artists emerging in the UK today. Marylyn completed her Masters at Central Saint Martins University of Arts London in 2018. She is the current Helen Scott Lidgatt award winner. 

Snap, crackle, pop’ is an installation that explores the artists tumultuous relationship with her own practice, and the guilt that comes with being a creator of ‘purposeless’ objects. Doomed to outlive their maker, these materials were intended for use, and now have been warped into impractical creations, obsessively remade, meanings constantly in flux, living in an anxious state of in-between, something, and ‘thing.’ 

Molisso uses personal clothing, scaffolding, floorboards from her family home and bedding among the many materials to needle at the inherent quality of things. Subjectivity, and how easily it can be added or erased, is explored in these assemblages. The sculptures become a self-portrait, a burden, and junk. 

Sporadically through the weeks, the sculptures will snap and tumble, pushed around the confines of the gallery. On the opening night, viewers are encouraged to wreak violence on a collection of small, cement rubber ducks. Tension imbedded in the work is sought to be ruptured, turning the gallery into a place of play and destruction.
