> DESCRIPTION

With Spring and Renewal, artist Patrick Cadenhead seeks to create a multi-sensory meditation on religion, laundry, and our denial of decay. Large sculptures caked in common cleaning products make up this installation, as active fountains push water and soap over and through, constantly changing the physical appearence. The smell, look, and other implications of cleanliness are applied to our own sensibilities and desire to wash away and begin again. Our notions of individuality and the sacred are challenged by the resulting entropy, revealing the futile and steady deterioration of our own ideals toward a state of inert uniformity as we strip away our “dirt.”
