Lund’s practice is rooted in familiar objects and the stories they tell. She investigates the traces and memories of a quotidian material’s previous function through new contexts and perspectives. In Lund’s series of works, Drums, the artist creates bronze casts of the polystyrene inserts that wrap around the edges of delicate consumer objects. These precisely shaped objects only exist in conjunction with the objects they protect, removed from this context and cast in bronze the specificity of their shapes no longer serves a purpose. The sculptures solidify voids and give prominence to inconspicuous shapes and surfaces.
Further works in the show experiment with notions of presence and absence. Lund’s series of works Torso, are slabs of concrete which feature an imprint of a jumper. Lund once again plays with context and expectation by transforming everyday materials into something unfamiliar: the so fabric of the garment is rendered hard. No longer subject to function, the objects become fossilised versions of their former selves.
