Courtney Kemp

Portland, OR

Kemp aims to make the contemporary and precious from the materials and objects that surround us in our homes.  Sourcing both architectural details and home utility objects, she aims to expose the moments through which we understand an interior domestic space.  Kemp provides subtle glints of material recognition which allow the viewer to connect to a memory of place or or time.  The mundane everyday objects integrates itself onto our bodies as fresh, new, and wearable.
