SELF-MADE

Corrina Goutos

Corrina’s current collection- “Self-Made” is a series of remnants of Generation Z’s search for permanence in an attention-deficit-disorder society.  Also known as the ‘Me’ Generation or ‘Selfie’ Generation- Z’s have mastered the catered image of self.  They design the face they will present to the world; they build a platform on which to receive praise and filter criticism.  They are beautiful but lacking in depth- a fragile façade.  The pieces reference cheap modern mass production, but are constructed with materials associated with luxury and employ high handcraft technique.  Handled with neurotic, obsessive control of the material to fit our desires- yet they remain distinctly human.  “Self-Made” is a souvenir to this era of indifferent indulgence; a contemporary artifact to commemorate the modern consumer and his/her many short lived personalities.
