“The works in Leftovers are gestures - odes - to artists I have known personally, or admired from a distance. Artists who have shaped my practice and/or thinking in profound ways. I reached out to a myriad of artists - cap in hand - to ask if they might be able to offer me some of their studio-floor scraps to undertake this new body of works called Leftovers. I soon realised that it was the provenance of the leftover that most compelled me. These weren’t just any old scraps, they were cast out in the course of another artist’s own careful editing process. Each rejected remnant was immediately imbued with new value simply by being selected - picked up off the floor and handed over as something. They became great again - full of potential. These arbitrary fragments have become templates for this new body of sculptures, further extending the ways in which byproducts of processes can become blueprints.” - Sanné Mestrom
