My Biscuit Ate Itself

My Biscuit Ate Itself

Dienstgebäude gallery Zürich

2015

My Biscuit Ate Itself is an attempt by the artist to take a moment, press pause and create a space to look nostalgically backward at work still being carried forward. The idea being, to curate a collection of existing work, in which quotidian habits and rituals, alongside episodic or cyclical actions, are used as a platform for the production of art.

As part of the curatorial conceit, each work within the selection process had to be in some way still active as part of an ongoing process or series. Alternatively, old work not yet seen or activated in an art world context was also deemed eligible for the show. Begging the question, if it ever even existed prior to being seen for the first time? My biscuit ate itself is a string of 18 independent artworks produced at different points in time over a period spanning the last ten years; a concatenation of work that focuses on the potency and poetry of small gestures.
