don't we We run run things things?!

A solo exhibition by Matt Welch, juxtaposing materials used in the construction of domestic spaces with symbols that refer to subcultural identities.

Welch marks their visual resemblance by questioning them through different scenarios, giving low-value items a presence that makes them simultaneously autobiographical and universal.

The multi media installation - consisting of silent video, elements of sculpture, and wall painting - confronts our use of materials and their histories with a distinctive yet humorous critique.

The title of this solo exhibition is a lyric taken from Miley Cyrus' 2013 song We Can't Stop.

The words of the original line "we run things, things don't run we" have been swapped around and ordered to read; don't we run things?! - with the duplicated words retained to suggest an exaggeration of speech.
