Employing an uncanny selection of everyday objects – including chewing gum, hockey sticks and melted birthday candles – Michael Georgetti constructs a precarious playground of painting, drawing and installation. Imbued with human tendencies, inanimate objects develop unexpected relationships, perform new functions and enact their own failure. In Georgetti’s words, Arena ‘celebrates the loss of trust that occurs when things fall apart’.
