2011, expanding foam and plaster

The Turds are studies of the uncontrollable. Owen has cast his expanding foam sculptures and added a performative feature to the cast copies. His aim is to let the audience see the casts continuing to expand and grow independently like living organisms in the exhibition space. This intensifies the effect of the dynamic, organic and unpredictable nature of his medium by making it directly visible to the audience.
