Belongings, Williams’ most recent installation at The Soap Factory, uses video to document each and every physical aspect of her home. No stone is left unturned and no single toothpick is un-catalogued. Belongings is a catalogue of physical possession, a series of seemingly endless video loops of Williams’ identifying and recording each and every physical object within her home. The ideal effect of Belongings, according to The Soap Factory Executive Director Ben Heywood, is to consider the “futility of possession.”
Rosemary Williams currently lives in St. Paul Minnesota. Williams' work is exhibited regularly in New York City, and has also been shown recently in galleries in London, Minneapolis, and the Czech Republic, with a recent project in Berlin. She was a Jerome Foundation Emerging Artist Fellow in Visual Arts for 2007-8.
Belongings runs through February 20th, 2011 at the Soap Factory.
