2022 BORGESON ARTIST IN RESIDENCE EXHIBITION
Nick Fagan’s summer research and resulting exhibition revolves around the concept of sincerity and using repurposed objects found in the community. Recently, he’s been working with the idea of residue or spirit in repurposed objects, or more specifically the accomplishment or purpose of objects left behind. With specific interest in things like doilies, crocheted blankets, things that are handmade and likely served as gifts, he believes these objects wear the residues of their past owners’ lives. The sincerity in the object or in the presence of the object comes embedded in its form.
