Artists Pilar Gallego and Megan Whitmarsh come together in conversation about their work and shared engagement with consumer culture. They will be discussing their practices including their work, Garramone Knock-Offs, and Beachcomber Trash currently presented at Days.
Megan's work uses the visual noise of her youth as inspiration, making drawings, hand embroidered pieces, and soft sculptures about the detritus of the modern world.
Pilar's work is an interdisciplinary investigation of fashion and style through the lens of gender and psychoanalytic theory, prompting viewers to question their own engagement with commodity fetishism.
