Shelf Life is an installation of twenty-one sculptures shelved along the recesses of a narrow corridor in the basement of SculptureCenter. Fluorescent lights illuminate forms that resemble vessels, body parts, and artifacts. Made of unfired clay contained within a plastic skin, their supple forms will wrinkle, blister, discolor, and harden during the course of the exhibition.

Shelf Life is modeled after two disparate spaces that regulate value. Supermarket aisles display consumables with limited immediate value whereas museum display cases present value as permanent. Shelf Life stages a hybrid of both to critically consider the correlation between change and value, of bodies as well as art objects.
