Caroline Mak performs and enacts repetitive transformative actions that bestow upon the material an ability to further decay, multiply or spread beyond its original confines. The systems that emerge in her sculptures and installations contain references to disciplines ranging from topography, biology and the decorative arts. Natural processes are translated, reflected and re-created. In the process of construction, systems become apparent in the spaces they are assigned to, each self-contained worlds with their own inherent logic. Through her construction of imagined exoskeletons, colonized spaces and fantastical failed repairs, she injects an element of humor and despair – eventually creating utility out of futility.
