The Hoarders, E Pluribus Unum
The Hoarders is a little surreal, having some recognisable objects collected within the old house, while many of the shapes are more fluid, comprising a kind of interior anatomy. I have always been fascinated by the phenomenon of hoarding, and how much it is the same as collecting.
E Pluribus Unum-- the Latin phrase, Out of many, one-- adorns the Great Seal of the U.S. The regularity of bricks morphing with upper courses into individual bean-like shapes, eventually forming an individual silhouette… it seemed to call out for this title.
