Gallery > How To Get things Done

How to Get Things Done explores our constructed environment. Jordan Schwab’s sculptures resemble architectural models, but instead of completed structures they show partially completed projects. The sculptures, drawings and photos in this exhibition capture constructions in progress. The depicted work sites are in transition. Artworks might be plans for future projects or documentation of past endeavours. Other objects are devices temporarily utilised to assist the building process and improve the efficiency of labour. Frame walls stand bare on a garage renovation. The wood shell of a hotel on stilts is not yet completed. Schwab explores the engineering of these labour saving devices and their efficiency in the process of construction.
