Featuring works on paper, drawing, objects and sound installation, this “Every Day” exhibition investigated everyday life through the intertwining relationship of boredom and time.
Essentially, nothing happened in the state of boredom. Influenced by her workplace experience in retail business, Tracy explored how the weariness engulfs the everyday life. The fast-paced retail environment required a consistent agility to pursue the ever-changing ambitions. The futility of pursuing was no less significant than the fate of Sisyphus.
As per Heidegger’s suggestion, profound boredom empowered an individual to radically face the inner self and searched the meaning of being. In the course of time, boredom varied and was clouded between confronting and adapting to the futility. By exploiting the sum of several bodies of work, the artist attempted to realize herself by the way she lived or did not live at all, awake instead of shaking off the different intensity of emptiness to explore the existential question about the innate desire of reason.
