LIST LUST 1: MOVIES 2020

Making lists of lists of my favorite things inspired a small pop-up online exhibition during lockdown 2020. Film has always played an enormous part in my life, as well as my visual art language and building assemblage tableaus for my favorite films was a joyful exercise in satisfying my compulsive miniature-collecting habit and abating my compulsive collecting problem.
